Have you visited your boat lately?

Contributed by damon on Mar 30, 2013 - 09:09 AM

After a long gloomy winter I visited DSA to check the water level and take a look around. After last years severely low lake (is it a lake with no water?) I'm really hoping the Corp. of Engineers will at least meet the pool guide this year. It seems a long time since the lake has had a season without  flood or empty conditions.

While I was there I noticed a number of  members boats that need some attention. Some boats have been blown over and others were completely or partially off their trailers. I was able to put some right but since I was alone I didn't want to cause further damage by trying to right some of them.

If you have a boat on the DSA lot you should check on it soon!

Still Waiting on Water!

Contributed by jcpanetta on Jun 12, 2012 - 05:58 PM

Arkabutla Lake is still too low to sail on! While we have had some rain over the last few weeks it has not been enough to raise the level. The current level is available at the following site:

Arkabutla Lake Level 

While we have not been able to sail at Arkabutla several members have been traveling to regional regattas to sail. This weekend (June 16-17) several Lightnings are going sail in the Mississippi Valley Districts at Harbor Island Yacht club in Nashville, TN.

 We will post additional information about Arkabutla along with other regional sailing options as information is available.

 Hopefully we will get some additional rain so we will be able to use Arkabutla soon.
