[img]/media/kunena/attachments/vb/785919=38163-night on the lake.jpg $10.00 a night for an empty island. I hate to admit it, but later I ran the genny for two hours just to watch a movie with the Admiral.Next mod ? Ladder for bow to beach access.

You can solve the beaching problem by 'Med Mooring" Easy to do and when your ready to go just pull up the stern anchor and you'll drift out into deeper water while the bow anchor does its job...

I didn't realize I had a beaching problem. I intended to beach the boat, and it worked. When I leave I have 450 horses that pull me right off. I don't use a stern anchor. No need.

Great pic Iceclimber, where is it? We'll be on Lake Powell soon, but I think they have fire restrictions...:(

I too prefer the bow toward the beach, whether I'm beached or anchored out in prep for low tide. Two anchors get used in either situation for me though because my boat is so light that wake from passing boats will send me floating away. So whether beached or not, the procedure is the same. I would probably prefer to face the stern to shore if I had a larger boat, for no other reason that to minimize the amount of sand that tracks on board.

I don't beach with the 45, but when we had the 32 in the delta we only bowed in. Didn't want to take a chance of having the props come in contact with anything. If you have outdrives, stern in is an option as you can raise the drive. Other than that unless you are going to wade in to shore, bow in is the order of the day.

Icecliimber. Great picture. Couldn't ask for a more perfect situation, deserted isle, fire, clear sky's and your boat. Not bad, not bad at all.

Priest Lake, Idaho. That island is close to my moorage but like on another planet. Saves on gas :)

Hey PC. I have to bow in to those islands, due to wakes etc. the rudders can be at risk as you mention. Why do I know this ? Being woken up at 2 am by a grinding sound. That was a fun time, turning the boat around by hand. We have a system now, hand up everything through the hatch...toss it on shore.

Bow ladder, that's the ticket.

I can understand that. I run a second line to the beach and it's worked well - might try a lunch anchor next time.

Which Island? Kalispell? Bartoo? We were up a couple of weeks ago and got a bouy off Kalispell Island for the night. A buddy of mine keeps his 2859 at Priest Lake Marina.

Now that looks like a nice evening. I can't wait to spend a night like that out on the boat. Just have to find a sitter for the little one so me and the admiral can get time alone.

For CDA, launch at Blackwell Island. Fabulous inexpensive launch, I think it's Forest Service and technically on the Spokane river. You can turn to starboard all the way to Post Falls, ID. You will see some interesting houses. And/or turn to port into the CDA lake. The resort and downtown is worth a look, public moorage for the day is free. Priest Lake is by far the jewel of the area. Launch at Kalispell, fast run north to the upper lake. If you draw 3 feet or less, you can find yourself in probably the most exclusive location in the area. Huckleberries, grizzer bears and eagles.

You are of course welcome to ask more questions, or join the Admiral and I for some dinner on board Personal Space.

Cheers.
