The lake they are using requires the driver's stand to be at one end. The lake is approximately 200+ ft at its widest point & is approximately 1200+ ft in length. Also, there are many homes on the west side of the lake. I'm investigating Randleman Lake which has a launching ramp for our gas powered retrieving boats. Randleman Lake has as much water to run in as Falls Lake. Both are reservoirs but both allow gas powered boats.
