Live on the opposite side of the state from you - near Kalamazoo. Just ordered my very first Mastercraft from Chris at Action in Hudsonville. Great experience, would definitely recommend working with that team. 2013 X55 will be replacing a Sea-Doo Wake 210 in my barn. Can't wait to get it in the water... once it thaws...

Congrats man. That 55 is a great looking boat. It's huge especially compared to my X2 but I bet it throws a huge wake. The guys at Hudsonville are nice guys too.

Skied there for years, worked there a couple. Who's your daddy? Ask him if he remembers Jeff and Andy Dale.

Are you talking the course just of 69 in Charlotte? I had a time slot there for a couple years...

Yeah. Used to be an actual ski school. Great site. Don't know anything about how it operates now.

I'm pretty sure I know who your Dad was, but if I'm correct he was a bit older than me. I'm 40 now.

It is plenty deep so there is no problem with surfing as long as you avoid the sandbars. It also has a ski course that is in for as long as possible.

My favorite part (besides the watersports) is the island. There are a few events throughout the summer including lobsterfest, a night with a live band, the fishing contest, and my favorite, the hot dog roast!

Let me know if you ever take a look around I'd love to show ya what to look out for
I really appreciate the input. Sounds like a great little lake! When the time comes and i get serious about looking at lake front I will have to take you up on that offer!

The site has been closed for years, the only thing that is left is a sign for it.

Yeah he is quite a lot older, he's 56.

We go past when visiting the inlaws a couple times each year. Someone still skis there, it would be a crime if noone did.
