The last time I was there I took my 18' I/O, raised the stern drive and even left the trailering bracket in place and put the prop in my truck. They told me if I wanted to use it in the lake I had to remove the gas tanks. They are bolted in under the deck so removal is not an option. It seems they manipulate the rules depending on what phase the moon is in, needless to say I have not been back there in 4 years and refuse to return. I did everything I could to "disable" the stern drive, I have a bow mount trolling motor and the boat was licensed. Go figure.Yes Aurora is electric only and if you have a gas powered motor it must be raised out of the water.
I was in a canoe like boat and as I went to cast a wake from a large speed boat nailed me and tossed me over. The water was so cold, I could not even figure out how to until the rope that I tied to my life vest. Fortunately, there was a person in a pontoon boat that pulled me out of the water. It just happened to be the day I decided to bring all my fishing gear since I did not know what I was going to catch. Somewhere out in the middle of the lake there is $500+ of fishing gear.upnorth said:Michael-What happened at Chatfield to dump you in the middle? I'm interested since I just bought a small alum. fishing boat and plan on going there soon.
