Does anybody on here board up in Northeast Missouri? If so, where do you board?

The water over the weekend was for the most part terrible. However, Saturday we went for about a half hour boat ride and found some water that was perfect. The ride back just stunk, then there was the hour and a half wait to get out. Normally the water is pretty good on weekends, and if you go out during the week, it is awesome. I've gone more than once when it looks like glass and there are so few boats you can board right down the middle of the main channel.

I'm from St. Louis, but we tend to go to Southern Illinois to ride. We had GREAT water this weekend, but left on Sunday when it was starting to get extremely crowded.

The MU Wake/Ski team rides at Longbranch lake every Tues/Thurs/Fri, around 4:00.

I guess I didn't realize that MU has a wake/ski team, but that sounds pretty sweet. I'll have to ask some of the guys I know that go to Longbranch if they've ever seen them.

Chris G., where are you from and do you make it there very often? We're hopefully headed out there Thursday afternoon if the weather holds out.

Nice, I live in Hannibal. I can leave the house and have the boat in the water in 35 minutes, which is pretty nice. Especially right now. I'll take an afternoon off of work, and about 4:00 that water smooths out and is just awesome.

so do you have a tower on your crownline..? i asked the dealer about putting one on mine and they didn't want to do it and they said it would void my warranty. even if they did do it for me..

No, I don't have a tower...yet. Hopefully I'll have one for next season. I'm wanting a Monster Tower, but need to save up the cash for it. I had talked to one of the local Crownline dealers about it, and he wanted nothing to do with putting a tower on. Luckily, I work at a John Deere dealer, so I have access to shop space, tools, lifts, etc., so I don't have a problem putting one on. I've also had enough experience working with fiberglass on cars that I'm pretty comfortable there.
