i got my boat out monday and headed out tuesday to check it out. we went off the west side and we got about 100 yards from the island and my motor quit. i was in such a hurry to go out that i had not put my trolling motor on my boat. i had bought my boat new in 97 and it has never skipped a beat but there i sat with my 12 year old and my 6 year old in the boat and didn't know what to do because no one was on the lake. and the wind was blowing in the wrong direction. we could get it to run but it kept stalling. it took us an hour to get back to the landing. i was never so glad to reach the landing! but whats worse was when i called to see about getting it repaired every one is 3-5 weeks out to get repaired. since i bought the boat i have always wanted a bigger motor so now on saturday i am going to go look at a new motor. what luck huh. so i still have the key in my pocket and haven't looked at it so with luck next saturday i will try to get out there. i normally do big stone but i am going to pass this year.

I bought my place in 92...I went out to look at it and fell in love with the island....the next weekend, in late October, I took my wife,"SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED" to see the place...she thought a cabin on an Island was a poor idea...we took my 14' crestliner with the 5 horse johnson and enjoyed the place for an hour...There was no dock as the place had sat unused for about two years ...as we sat the wind came up from the south and boat swung around and beat the prop against a rock...when we tried to head out against the pounding surf I discovered that the shear pin had snapped..my wife was convinced that it would be weeks or monthes before the search party found us...And she informed me that my bad behavior and foul language were doing nothing to convince her to buy a cabin on an island...fortunately I salvaged the situation by replacing the shear pin with a finish nail and convinced her that there was nothing that Her Man couldn't handle...the rest is histoy...King Canada

Wait until you ride out one of the nasty storms than can hit ya out there! I remember as a young kid watching my Dad and a friend fishing the "point" in his little boat when a funnel touched down on the NW corner of the lake and went right across the point! They couldn't make it to shore so they just rode out the waves! It layed every tree down flat at the point with the water spout going several hundred feet into the air! Quite the site!! Oh yeah, they came back with one of the most impressive stringers of walleye's I've seen!!

Tram, were you out there Fri. night? I heard some other people say that it looked like some lights at the point?

Do they have the docks in at Park 1 yet? They have the Park 2 landing kinda tore up now, they are moving some parking area's around and redoing the road. Later!

The dock atPark 1 went in two weeks ago...a best ever for the county boys....I swear Big Kandi may be the windiest place on earth... The first big storm we weathered on the island in 93 really made us nervous...but the sky always clears and the lake calms back down...the cabin was built in 59 and it's still standing so it can survive most everything.

KC, I wonder if that was the year the Willmar Airport lost a bunch of planes? I think there were gusts of winds over 90 mph. I know I was in the cabin as were the two guy's on either side of me. When the "wall" of water took all the docks, lifts and boats and through them up on shore it was pretty ugly. Then the wall of water went up and around all our cabins about 1.5 feet deep!! Now I've seen winds and waves out there but never anything like the lake coming out of it's shore!! smile.gif
