    Default Switching to Boating

    Been reading the forum for awhile for information and finally joined. Currently looking at getting out of drag racing, currently run a nostalgia front engine dragster and getting a boat so the whole family can enjoy going fast. Mainly would be boating on Lake Tahoe.
    Glad to be aboard

    I ran NHRA Super Comp/Gas for years, anywhere between Boise, Tucson, and the Pacific Ocean. After tiring of the politics, fee's, and replacing items deemed expendable by an expiration date, I too took my marbles and found a new game.

    I have owned boats since 1969.

    My wife and I vacationed for years in the Tahoe Keys, however since the TRPA has decided to make a profit from the current Zebra/Quagga mussel threat I refuse to pay their extortion fee's to use a public lake. The people running the inspections are arrogant and uninformed. Prior to my last visit I had been boating at Don Pedro. I was informed that Don Pedro was contaminated and my boat would need to be decontaminated by running 140 degree water through my engine. I ask to see documentation confirming that, I was told " well we don't have a copy, but we know all the lakes that are affected ". Blatant lie, then I was charged an extra 40 bucks to run 140 degree water through my engine that normally runs 160.

    So good luck with the eco-Nazis running the area, oh and by the way, during my last visit two years ago, regular gas at the Chevron at the Tahoe City marina was $ 6.99 a gallon.

    Larry, you make it sound so appealing. LOL.

    Although, I was in Tahoe last weekend and didn't take a boat because it it such a pain in the ass for just a day or two.

    Hey Scott

    Congrads on the new boat, looking forward to seeing you on the water.

    You saved yourself a lot of aggravation, if those douche bags at the TRPA had their way, they'd have you park in Placerville and take a wagon train over the hill. Besides that the casino's stopped having any kind of a decent show in the evening long ago, and the Friday night lobster feast's ended also. I would rather spend my boating money where it is appreciated.

    I totally understand and agree with the need to curb these invasive species. However taking advantage of vacationers I don't understand nor agree with.

    You pay extra already in your boat registration to help with the mussel problem, and any other lake I have been checked at was free of charge, so screw those alpine extortionists.
