Good Eye John!

Yes I only had 4 bouys at the time. I built the course the night before leaving on this trip and ran out of time to build all six. I have since completed the last two arms and know have six.
Great looking site you have there!

I hope to have a picture of our course on Caddo Lake by next week. Still under construction.

Lots of Duck blinds built on this lake. An older one that nobody uses anymore is at the far end of where our course will be. Can anyone say "turn island."

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That will be a very cool turn Island!! I look forward to seeing a picture. This could bring a whole new meaning to make the Buoy or else, Only in Texas!

LOL! Probably won't do much to dissipate the wakes (unless we stacked a few tires on and around it). Probably be a sweet spot to snap some pictures. There are also some stands about mid-course that would be prime picture-taking spots, too. Can't wait to get it up and running. This may prove to be the closest thing to a private lake on a public lake I can think of. The lake, as a whole, is covered with channel markers. My father-in-law's house is on a bay without the markers. There are stumps everywhere else, but not on this bay. But if you didn't know better, you'd stay away. Apart from the occassional fisherman and other people who live on the "bay," it's basically empty. We're the only people who I've ever seen ski there. And without a course, we would be skiing somewhere else.

Let me make sure we get it set up right, first. Patience. My brother in law and his wife are coming up this weekend. With his help, I should be able to "Get 'r done."

That's like my lake that I have a cottage on, it is very shallow and it scares away all the other boats. I have my course right out in front of the cottage in a channel and only have one other boat to deal with, and they are freinds down the lake that once they saw me in a ski boat bought one themselves. It is like a private lake also.
