In the local course, there is no problem with aquatic vegetation. On our course, there is typically no problem with it this early in the year. As the water level drops, you start to see more of them.

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.

I was wanting ot make a course, but I've found this and want to try. For $25, they have private lake, course, instruction, provide the boat and driver. Only about 45 minutes away.

Seems like you need to sprinkle a little of that veggie killer stuff around there!

Man made lake?

Yes, it's a bigger lake at one of the exits off the interstate. I've swam the lake many times back when I did triathlons.


The guy warned me the set up is very tight.

Sorry to answer Leroy but I believe the lake was originally designed for camping/fishing/swimming and even had a nice rec area. Not originally designed for skiing. Very nice lake though. I skied a long time ago there 89/90 at a very amatuer event!

No problem Bob, I meant it is one of the "lakes" they make when they make an exit and scoop dirt out to make the ramp for the bridge. Similar to the guys course up I-69 toward Ft Wayne.It still has the campground and stuff, drove by there last weekend on the way to Cincinnati.

I do remember it being a little short but nothing like some friends in Ohio I have ski'd on. Talk about short! They run an 8 bouy course. You have to skip the first 2 on avery run but you can then use a much shorter lake. I have mentioned that many times before I am sure.

I thought about that.You can save about 275 feet on a man made lake.You would have to put more bouys(gates) of different colors to know where you're going.

The more I think about it it is a great way to get a lake nobody has targeted for slalom and save tons of $$$. Most can be lenghtened later if you allow for it in the planning.
