10 years of house boating experience on Powell, which is nothing on this site. The one thing that i feel is so important is the skill of anchoring the houseboat. We always go out of Bullfrog in late July, early August and it never fails that the wind will blow sideways and weather will change on a dime and throw some decent waves/chop in the late afternoon. The storm will never last long but if you don't have the houseboat anchored correctly and the wakeboat anchored correctly it can ruin the day or the trip. There are many people on this site more qualified and could explain it better than I ever could. Ask around and there are probably old posts on this site that would be very helpful.
