Hope so...It was desperately low last Aug. We hit some 5' water halfway into Las Tablas!

Sorry so late on this Tank, I believe it was at 34% last week when I went up, if I remember correctly, we were up there that same weekend, and it was at 27%? It may come up a little more, but I wouldn't count on a whole lot more water this year. It's gonna be good for memorial day, and maybe the 4th, but I'm not sure anytime after that is going to be good for your boat. Keep in mind that my pontoon can go anywhere, so if you ever just want to come up, let me know, and you can hang with us on the pontoon.

Whattup fellas?? I though when we were out in August last year it was like 30%? I guess 34 is good enough to get out there; I may only be able to make 1 trip this year as the baby is due to arrive May 10 and I don't think Tablas is the best place for a newborn. If I can sneak away solo, maybe I'll jump on Ken's toon (or Tank's Cig! You gotta drive past my house on your way up there anyway!!!!)

I was out on the lake yesterday and it has come up but nothing to get excited over. In Las tables where it was pretty shallow at the end of last summer is about 15' deep right now. I mean there is plenty of water to play just a couple points that stick out a little in the main channel to watch out for. It was nice to be back out on the water though let me tell you. Im probaly going to be out saturday its supposed to be in the 80s.:)devil

Hey, thanks for the info and the offer on the pontoon! 34% is good but it needs to get up higher! I miss the way it was two years ago at 90% or whatever it was. If it doesn't get more rain up there it's going to be nearly non-existant by the end of the summer. I've been told by friends that have owned in Oak Shores that they remember (pos. in the 80s) when it virtually dried up! No boating, just riding motorcycles and atv's in the lake bed!

Millhouse, rides in the Cig are always available when we're up there (or any other time for that matter).:)devil

Mead call me I'm in for shizzzle... I'm not on call for once:)devilIs eddie bringing his boat as well??
Haven't been able to get a hold of him, so not sure if I will be going or not. The whole point was to test props, but I need to get them from him first. I'll give you a call tonight.

Tank-
I will be expecting a call any time you guys head north this summer! Since the bulk of my summer will be spent changing diapers, I need any excuse to get away.....;)

Oh yea? Us too. Baby boy is 7 weeks. If the water doesn't raise a bit I dont think I'll be putting the cig in there. Little scetchy in Sept. when we were there. Hit 5' water depth around the corner to the big opening in las tablas. I've never personally been there when the water was that low. I was nervous all day about my props. Funny thing is (well not exactly funny) after running all weekend and not hitting anything I come into drop my wife off at the heritage dock and as I'm turning I tangle my port prop around that big azz wire that holds the dock in place!! Wrapped it around one time but enough that I then had to jump in the water with a prop wrench, pop the prop off and put it back on all while trying not to loose the prope wrench, nut, washer, prope or drown!!:D

Wow that sucks! I only worried about my wife hitting that line when she was backing the boat out from the dock....you are quite the skipper :D

Congrats on the baby, our first son will be here on or before May 10.

Congrats to you too. It's a lot of work but all worth it.;)

Do you guys live on the water down there in Oxnard/Port Hueneme harbor? I love that neighborhood where everyone's back porch is a dock

We're on the beach at Hollywood Beach not in the harbor. The new harbor houses are sweet. The whole new harbor back there they built is outstanding! Love cruising the boat back there for lunch.

The wife and I looked at those places in the harbor when we still lived in Ventura but the prices were too high at the time. I would still love a place on the water, but we love living in the wine country now. If you guys ever want to do a wine-tasting trip, let me know and we can escort you around the valley.

Yea, the new ones are still lower to mid millions....Dans (H20Tioe from on here) house in the harbor is pretty bad azz! (see picture). I've talked about moving to the harbor with my wife (keep the boat on a hoist in front of the house would be NIIIIICE! But I think we agree we're too happy on the beach. Best of both worlds.

Thanks for the invite....Soon as the baby is a bit older, might take you up on it. And you're always welcome to come on down and cruise the harbor and run the Cig with us out here.

That is siiick! We're gonna make the trip down to the harbor one of these days, just don't know when. We'll see how the baby does in the boat when he gets here....only hold up there is I won't want to go very fast with him in the boat and Santa Barbara harbor to Ventura harbor at 30mph is gonna take a while. We'll see
