  1. Well the 115 was sold before I could buy it. I will look into strakes.
  2. So I have a 2075GL with a Yamaha F75 4 stroke. I have the opertunity to purchase a Yamaha 115 Hp 4 stroke of the same year. I would go larger but the boat nameplate states max. motor of 115 hp. Will the extra 40 hp make a significant difference in speed and turning power? My boys have been wanting max speed of the 75 for several years while tubing.
  3. Go to E-Bay and search for 5M RGB Waterproof. They adhere to the bottom edge of deck frame nicely. You can pick whatever color you want that day.

  7. Here's the picture. FYI the Tach gauge uses a 194 bulb, all of the smaller gauges use T4 Neo Wedge. Bought them all for under $5 on EBay, but did wait awhile for them to arrive from Hong Kong. Of course now I want to find blue LED rocker switches.
  8. We also are well known by OH, IL, & IN residents. There about 10 of us on this site on Cumberland and only a couple live in KY if that tells you anything. If you make it down, shoot me a PM and I'll gladly show you and your family around.

  9. Well, it depends on what you call open season. Some of the best Striper fishing is done over the winter. Traditionally the water is cold until mid May and the comfortable season goes through the end of September. Probably not much different than C. IL weather.

    The lake is lined with rolling hills and scattered waterfalls. In 2013, the water level should be high enough tosee 76 falls (goog...

  10. That's a good way of locating it. Does the entire lake have cool things like that? How early in does the season open down that way. We live in Northern IL but store it at my Folks in Central IL. Some year we were going to go to Kentucky Lake in the spring, but Cumberland Lake like it is not that much further.

  11. 36.806484, -85.026659 copy and paste into Google Maps.

    That's the best way to find the waterfalls.

  12. Where are the falls in your first picture located?
