Sunday July 20th

Lake Martin, Alabama

Nothing official in the way of sponsors or dealers-no freebees or swag, food or drink provided

Just a day to hang out and get to know some fellow Moomba Maniac's

Rough plan would be to meet at Chucks Marina/ pizza around 11 am
located at 237 Marina rd, Dadeville, Al, 36853
www.lakemartin.com (http://www.lakemartin.com)

After lunch we will head over to Acapulco/Chimney Rock island area to
hang out, raft up and the such. Lots of areas to surf and wakeboard close by
or watch the crazy ones take to the rock cliff and make the jump-at your own risk of course.

Hope to meet everyone and hope some old friends can make it-I have room in my boat for you-Drew and family.

I just got a call back from an owner of a house on the lake. I have corresponded with Will for over a year. He was planning on selling his house and did not want to accept rentals at the time we booked for this summer. He just told me he is keeping the house and wanted to see if we were interested in booking. I told him it was too late but I would share his link for others who might be planning on heading to Lake Martin this summer. This is one of the best value rentals on the lake and on the best part of the lake. Check it out here:

about 58 miles more, according to the interweb

kaneboats
02-21-2014, 02:45 PM
Wow. That's just ridiculous -- Lanier is huge. Martin has so many cuts and coves it makes for great boarding/surfing. The big water is nowhere near as big as Lanier (which means it's better for boats our size). Bad thing is there are very few ramps. Although, that probably keeps some people from launching which is probably a good thing overall.

The 'Ole L5-S1?

I 've had that discectomy. Surgery is simple and you wake up to instant relieve from that darn sciatic nerve pain.

I was walking around the hospital 4 hours after the surgery.

I think I was off from work for about two weeks.

6 months later I was back training for a marathon.

sadly-- no turn out, we got 1/3 of the way to chuck's pizza bar and turned around, heavy rain we could handle, monsoon rains in the direction we had to go and pretty much everyone said lets go back. I think we were the only 2 boats out on the lake that day. Maybe next year is will happen.....

07-27-2014, 08:20 PM
we spent the whole week on the lake, so much better than Florida lakes. Got to Chucks pizza twice-daughter says its the best pizza ever, im no so sure about that, but it is dang good and the beer was good and cold. stopped by the cliffs once and let the kiddos jump. I did get in a single surf run that according to the map would be a little over 5 miles long-my feet started to really hurt or I could have gone longer. went thru about 80 gallons of boat gas I think if memory is right

kaneboats
07-28-2014, 11:26 AM
I think I burned about 90 gallons. Mostly pulling my two youngest who learned to surf.

Here's one of E surfing past the chimney rock cliffs on Friday.

I have to make sure Mindy will be ok since she can't get in the water. All day on the boat would be tough for her in the heat
