    I looked at this lake on Google Earth, how far up the river can you travel. It appears the dam prevents you from traveling south.

    Depends. Not that far really. But, it's not like we have a ton of options. It is a reservoir and can fluctuate 50+ feet if it floods. So, if the water is up, you can go quite a ways. However, if it goes up too much boats like mine can't get under the bridge you see on there.

    SinOrSwim, you all obviously deal with harsher winters that we do. I'm curious, is it common to dry dock your houseboats there? That trailer would make it fairly easy. The boat in your photo looks about 45'-50'. Are there many boats larger than that?

    Ours are pulled every fall and put back into the water in April/May. Leaving them on the water is not allowed. The boat in the photo is 58 feet. There are a couple other boats around 60 or 62ft. It handles them fine as well. The trailer does houseboats, sailboats and cruisers. They just change where they put the pads.
