    I would not wish to be one of those judges. Tough job figuring out points to deduct from prefect boats.

    WOW what an amazing show and so many Great shots.

    Thanks Steve!

    So here is what is funny to me. Some of those piers are very high and at first it did not even seem strange to me because of the 10′ tides we have up here in the NorthEast. I don’t think Tahoe has tides?

    Looks like the lake is pretty low this year..
    Lotta pretty boats…Terry and his team are going to have their hands full picking the winners.

    I was told the lake is extremely low, causing some big problems for those around the lake not prepared to deal with such low levels. Some folks can’t launch at all this season. One of the Obexer guys told me that Thunderbird isn’t going to be on the lake due to a combination of engine issues and low water…too bad, as I’d hoped to see that boat in “person” so to speak.

    It is too bad the live camera doesn’t have sound. I imagined a guy bitching at his wife at the launch ramp. ” No! The OTHER left!

    Tahoe is actually not down very far from normal, only 1.2′ is all. Maximum water level achievable is 4′ above normal. If the volume of lake water was spread out over the state of California, it would be 14″ deep.

    The webcam is great but I am surprised at what seems to be light crowd turnout. I would have thought the docks would be wall to wall people!

    What the… I can not find any lapstrakes. Whts up with that? By looking at the marks on the seawall I thought it was way low also but maybe not.
