Glad to hear the lake is up! Last fall it was so low the motor had to be all the way up before we could get to the dock. A lot of the nearby boat lifts had to be placed well out from the shore. X2 on the wind there. When it blows out of the SW, it's a wind tunnel about 14 miles long. Definitely not an ideal lake for a small boat. The Bergland ramp was closed for paving on our last day last year, so I had to solo my 30hp 16' tiller from Bergland Bay to the State Park into angry 6-8 foot seas. Worst ride of my life, and that's saying something.
