Landlocked in Dallas

I am new to the forum. I am currently landlocked on lake Ray Hubbard near Dallas. Looking forward to when I can put my Pacific Seacraft Dana back on salt water. I have found the threads on ssb radios very informative. I think that will be the next project. On my last trip I just had a satellite phone.

Paul

I am over in Captains Cove. Slip E40. Boat is named We Shall See II. I live in Dallas. Now retired so am spending a lot of time on the boat. I will keep an eye out for you on the lake.

Re: Landlocked in Dallas

Same here-I'll look for you. I'm pretty easy to see..being one of the few banana colored boats out there. Do you ever join in on the Wed evening races?

By the way..how much depth you have over there in the marina. My depth meter is averaging about 6 to 6.5 ft inside the breakwater. If we don't get some rain pretty soon, I'm afraid we gonna be a little bit stuck.

Currently to get out of my slip, I have to use some revs as she scrapes mud. At the entrance to the Marina there is about 6 foot. I draw just a shade under 4 foot. The lake has risen a couple of inches over the last few days thank goodness.

Hi I'm also new to CF in the Dallas area - Lake Ray Hubbard. I live about 50 miles east. I have just now set my foot on a path that hopefully will lead to a retirement in a few years on a sailboat around the Gulf of Mexico, West Indies and Central America. I am picking up next week a Macgregor 2-22 to fix up - a learning laboratory - a trailer sailer -to learn how to maintain and operate a sailboat. I am interested in making connections with experienced sailors around LRH to make friendships and to learn how to be a sailor. Please respond to this post if you are interested in helping me down this path! Curtis

Welcome to CF Fellow Texans!
Have a Malibu Wakeboat on Lake Lewisville but several tmes in Oct. water was too low to launch our other wakeboat (4 college kids plus their friends) and the City had the launch ramps closed.
Had/ have similar problem @ our home on Lake Texoma. Water down so marina couldn't pull boats, they had to dredge it out twice. But bigger problem was Army Corp Eng. placed ban (placed on Friday before Labor Day weekend ) on many water type activities such as PWC and swimming due to toxic algae which made it interesting cleaning your Catalina hull in a dry suit! LOL!
They are hoping for the lake to get a little colder to kill it off mostly 4' or deeper underwater. They have relaxed parts of the ban since but it is winter!
Did you guys have any of that craziness @ LRH?

John from DFW

Re: Landlocked in Dallas

John, No we didn't have any bans on Hubbard. The lake maintained enough level that even the longer keeled boats could still get out (at Chandler's Landing) by entering/exiting the marina at the main cut by the boat ramp. We were down a little over 7 feet at the worst time. The north cut got to shallow for me to get out. I draw 4 feet so that gives you an idea. Now we are down just under two feet so things aren't bad at all. Looking forward to warmer weather.
