use the research option here as someone else mentioned doing this and got alot of advice on NOT doing it in a boat that small. the wind picks up in the afternoon on that lake and can leave you stranded on shore or even sunken somewhere :wallbash: I mean it can be done (my dad used to do it) but its very sketchy and dangerous, not to mention him and his bro almost sunk a few times.
I recently took a guided fishing trip to north pitt and was amazed at the level to which the weather/wind/waves varied along the 40 min ride up the lake. One thing in particular that would concern me most is the lack of places to beach the boat in case of an emergency, assuming you could make it that far. Most of the shore line, from what I remember, was made up of vertical rock walls dipping straight into the water.
pitt lake is an awesome lake in more respects than one.i have been boating up there for many years my advice to you is DONT DO IT you need to go up to the lake with somebody who knows it well and a 12 ft alum is out of the question period.the lake is VERY dangerous if you dont know its ways.many people have drowned on this lake.you need a 17 foot deep vee for this lake you can get by with less but must be careful good luck
Had one afternoon when my 25 footer seemed small. Can be nice at one end,and blowin at the other. Always have to be carefull. But then again, seen a pontoon boat on Harrison today up by Long Island getting bounced around with a load of women and kids. He thought he was safe, guess he was?
