Anybody go out today and know if all the ramps at the lake are still open?

I was there yesterday and they had two lanes on the main ramp and two on the alternate ramp.

If anyone is taking out an I/O and using the main ramp use caution in the area where the ramp sections are suppose to meet under water. A sizable gap is present and it damaged our skeg and made scrap metal out of our prop. Not only is it a possible tire swallowing gap but the ramp piece that is deeper is at a different angle. Early morning sun reflection kept us from spotting this until it was too late. Bill J has a pic of the damage. We've launched at San V dozens of times without incident so this definitely caught us by surprise.

Smart move there Mike, hahaha. But he did come prepared with a spare prop. That thing did have some nice dents in it. (I bet you're happy now you didn't go with steel)

Thanks I was thinking of taking some friends out today with a larger boat that could go off the end of the main ramp if the water was low.24ft trailer we ended up going to the bay . Got to San V. late and the line was too long.

By the way, it looks like they are finally importing water so maybe the lake level will come back up. Otherwise it's going to be a real mess soon when the new ramp closes and everyone has to use the old one.
