Anyone know the minimum size a lake would need to be before water skiing would be feasible?

I've got a purchase on a small pond/lake that most definitely IS NOT conducive to skiing, but the dumbazz/scumbag real estate bimbo insists that it is.

The fact that it's June in FLORIDA and none of the neighbors are out in a motorized boat on the weekend doesn't seem to indicate anything strange to her.

BTW, sales price is $440K. I came in at $395K. The realtard is hanging her hat on the lot being on a ski lake.

Alison, I am not clear how you feel about this Realtor. You might not want to mince your words, just tell us how you REALLY feel about her.

How big is the lake and how deep is it? I did a lake property on 26 acres with 70 lots which had plenty of room for water skiing.

Alison.. is this a private of public lake? Do they allow motorized watercraft? Do they limit the motor size, speed, boat size, wake size? June and no one on the water. Sounds fishy.

I've no idea. Does the lake have a launch? If not then skiing would not be a use of the lake. No boats = no skiing.

Realtors never cease to amaze me. I've seen them call to what amounts to a drainage ditch a "creek front property". And I've seen them call a property that required a 300 yard trek through swamp and marsh to a creek you could spit across "prime navigable water front property"

Now now Alison its not good for your blood pressure..........for me a minimum size would be ~10 Acres of water at least 4' deep. But thats just me.

Alison - check with the county and see if motors are even allowed on the lake.

Nobody out skiing in June is a good clue. Both ski lakes by me were buzzing all weekend with multiple boats.

Big enough to not hit the docks/shore as you slalom. Deep enough not to get stuck in the mud if you have a hard fall:wacko:
