Go to the lake, Parker is flowing river, not ideal for a shake down run.

Site 6 is a decent choice, just not on a weekend or busy time. Week days would be best.

Stay close to site 6 until you are sure of the boat.

Remember power steering-
No power, no steering.

Hope all goes well.

If you dont mind paying a fee, Crazy Horse camp ground has a nice launch and is close to everything!

Have\ no idea where site 6 is. Iíll google it. I thought maybe the lake would be too rough for small boat? The boat is a 19í CP. but yes agree river would be harder to navigate just if there are better/safer spots on the river? Especially launching/loading? Iíll be there for a week so Iíll wait till week day to go for a spin.

If going to Parker , launch from pirates . Launch ramp is in a lagoon and no current. Way easier to recover as well . When in April are u going ??? I might be there to lend a hand .

I take my 17 1/2 foot flatty out of site six all the time, Water is actually smoother on that side of the island compared to the main body of the lake, out of Windsor. Make sure you have 4wd out of site six because the ramp sucks ass. I was out there today, and will be out there tomorrow afternoon around 2:30 if you need any help

Itís for real😃🚤 and Iím stoked!
