I still dont get why hot-boaters wont go to Whiskeytown Reservoir as it is one of the most phenomenal lakes in Norcal. And the stories about being hassled by Rangers for speed and noise is just plain BULL-BUTTER!.... I was just up there for that past week and ran my boat every single day, open headers, no-water, flat out;.... Mornings and Evenings mostly (to get the perfect water) and never was once approached by the Sheriffs Dept and only one Ranger came by to let me know about the "NO-wake zone" near the camp grounds.... I told him I was going as slow as idle would let me and thats the best I could do. He was pretty understanding and didnt really say much more! Dont think he knew much about boats anyway-He stated that I could go as fast as I wanted in the NO WAKE ZONE as long as I didnt leave a wake!!!!! I didnt have the heart to tell him my boat doesnt leave any wake at 80mph!!!! lol
Heres a funny little video I took while we were playing around on the lake! This kid is a family friend that had never been in a 'speed-boat' of any type before.... I gave hime a little Joy Ride!
