Might be taking our 14ft fibreglass boat on stave this week.
Looking for tips, warnings, things to see etc.

Car topper or legit boat?

Awesome lake with many thing to see
need to respect it though, can turn nasty fast
Take it slow if going through the dead heads
A stop at boaters beach across from the mud flats is a must
The discharge tunnels half way up the main lake on west side is a gooder

Water is draining fast...I just stopped for a minute to have a last swim and looked over and a stup was just sticking out of the water where I have never seen it before. ....good thing I stopped

id say an aluminum jet boat is the safest boat for stave. I literally hit a stump almost every second time I go in my little 12 foot. follow the buoys till u get to the main part of the lake. the colors and placement of the buoys don't really make sense so I usually just stay close to them

Stave is a terrible lake full of lots of deadly hazards.I would go elsewhere. I knew a guy who boated there once , he had a terrible time and almost didn't make it back.
