We kept clear of everything this weekend. Big rain always is prop suicide or even worse damage.

Lake Austin looks bad. Last I heard it would be open today around noon, but that was on Friday.

John took the Velocity up to Cow Creek Sunday and said it was awesome.  He did run over a pallet though.  The stainless won.  Cool

It's kinda interesting being on the water after a big rain, the lake always has the strangest stuff floating in it.

Any news about whether Lake Austin is open again?  Is there an office site that has this info?

Lake Austin is open but if you go be careful.  I hear there is still alot of debris like large and small pieces of wood everywhere.

LOL, soooooo basically that means if you HAVE to hit the water you can, but you are risking near certain prop damage? Smiley

Thanks for the updates.  I'll wait for conditions to improve but I'm worried that it's going to be cold soon.

You've got another good month of boating before it starts becoming "challenging" to jump in the water.
