I don't drink that pee, i mean water. I drink bottled water from some other state's faucets that they pass off as bottled spring water.

I've always heard that there were a lot of wise guys in cement overshoes in the lake. I heard one time that some unfortunate party girls went out on a yacht with some married wise guys and didn't come back too.

Nope. No one came back a "winner" on that trip.

That would be MaryAnn and Ginger. It was supposed to be a 3-hour tour.

back when I was younger and the lake was fuller....I bought a small boat....14 ft....we went for a day trip down to the dam and over to the "paint pots" [AZ side of the lake....]
We were coming back and had stopped fo a minute for something....the water was like glass...something that you really have to experience to believe...because the ENTIRE lake didnt have a ripple on it.
We decided to head back and I started the engine, shoved the throttle forward, and before we could get the small boat up onto a plane...the entire lake was breaking with 3 foot high waves....it took an hour and 45 minutes to make the 15 minute trip back to the harbour.

My next boat was a 22 ft cabin cruiser with a BMF graymarine 6 in it....on Lake Mead the only thing better the POWER is more POWER.

Yep, the bigger boat the better out there. I've been out there a few times in little dinky rental fishing boats when there were white caps on the water. Let's just say the new bathing suits always fit better anyway. Have also been out there on a huge private yacht in the worst wind ever, and I couldn't believe how smooth that boat sailed across those big waves.

Couple of other dangerous things I discovered the hard way were quicksand, and sidewinders.

Quicksand! I'd like to hear a bit more about that...

Is that common out around Lake Mead?
