    TripleThreat was pretty right on. Skiing on the weekends is only good first thing in the morning and then sometimes right before sunset if it isn't windy. I hate travelling across it with kids in my 89 Tristar in the middle of the day because it beats my flat bottom boat to hell!

    PM Sent... but I'll share the contents here for others as well...

    Monroe is HUGE! Lots of chop anytime the wind is blowing... The southwest corner of the lake, past the spillway, down towards the dam, and down by Eagle Point Resort and condominiums is the best place to ski and board as it is the most narrow and protected portion of the lake. Weekdays, the place is deserted and it's like having the entire lake to yourself. Weekends can get really rough when the big boats come down from Indy.

    Avoid the 4th of July, as the place is insanely busy for the holiday and you won't be able to ski or board.

    There are some good places to just drop anchor and hang out when it gets rough and the northeast end of the lake, past the causeway, is a huge idle zone.

    The party cove is the cove that leads back to Allens Creek.

    Pull up a Google Map of the lake, and you'll see what I mean.

    Eagle Point has a nice golf course, if you are into that as well.

    The marina is nice and there is a nice restaurant there too... Ton's of places to eat in Bloomington as well. Also a lot of microbreweries to chose from. Upland and Lennie's are two of my favorites. Janko's Little Zagreb is the best place to go for steak... Little hole in the wall place with red and white checkered table cloths, a bit on the pricey side, but incredible steak!

    Make sure you hit up Brewster's Ice Cream at the corner of 446 and 46 as you come into Bloomington from the lake.

    Enjoy!

    Agreed.

    The website is terrible. Just didn't know if you had their address and phone number.

    I understand that they are great folks and do awesome work. I'm very happy with the quality of their work.

    Here is their website...

    http://vipercustoms.com

    Quality is awesome and I expect it to last me at least 10 years with proper care. They are located not too far from the MasterCraft factory and I believe that they have even done some repair work for the factory from time to time.
    I have been on viper customs web site before and very disappointed as there is one boat and no information other than address and phone number. Their finish product speaks for itself they need to upgrade their web site.

    Out on Lake Monroe tonight pulling my nephew on a wake skate and we were treated to a bit of an unusual site...

    A sea plane doing practice landings and take offs...

    Pretty cool!

    I hear ya.....we're in the same situation. Had a day with the 4 yr old and no baby. I couldn't remember how much fuel was in the boat yesterday, so I filled up....it took $12 before it spit at me. I bet we didn't burn 5 gallons yesterday.

    Yeah we went straight to the south side of the lake and stayed in a cove. It was busy, but hadn't been out due to the new baby, so we had to take advantage of the chance.

    I was.....but we pulled out at 3. I was at B-dubs when you posted this. Seemed like there were more idiots out than usual yesterday. Maybe it was just me...
