Post up your pics, videos. Or if you are heading out on a trip and want to meet up with some fellow S&M folks. River, lake what ever you fancy.

Ghost reservoir campground launch is not even useable at this time. The water level is too low. The water feeding in from the bow is fast and low. Spent about a half hour or so helping folks load their boats back onto their trailers after I pulled mine out. Lots of new boaters (also new Canadians ) trying to master this art.
She is about 15-20 feet low.
On the east side of the dam towards Calgary the bow river is high. I should have launched at Cochrane on the river.

The Garmin looks good !!! How was the launch ?

ya im pretty happy with it. Installed the mercury smartcraft gateway ( had to get from florida, dealers here are uselesss) as i had to remove some analog gauges to install the Garmin. So now all my engine data reads out on a nice mercury factory screen which is cool.


as for the boat launch, nice spot, good parking and turn around, good docks but holy fawk does a public boat launch bring out the degenerates of the world. Might as well put a big sign saying "all retards assemble here" couldn't believe the stuff i was seeing. Not used to that, usually I'm on a remote lake away from dummies LOL.

got there at 9am and it was perfect not busy at all. But tried to take out around 6pm and the launch must have had a 100 boat backlog. So cruised around for another hour until it cleared up.

Wow is that ever low. They just spent a ton of money rebuilding the ramp so we could use it when it was low. Another excellent government oversight
