Slow on Lake of the Ozarks!

Recommended Posts

No wake policy at Lake of the Ozarks.

The Missouri Department of Public Safety and the Missouri State Highway Patrol have issued a no wake policy at the Lake of the Ozarks effective immediately.

This policy is now in effect for the entire lake area.

Emergency responders will be the only exemption to this restriction.

As of July 2, the Lake of the Ozarks is at 662.5 feet; full stage is 660 feet and normal stage is at 658 feet. 

This restriction will be in place until the lake level recedes below 661 feet.

This is also due to a concern for the safety of those who live at and visit Lake of the Ozarks and to reduce or prevent damage to docks and other personal property.

The Patrol suggests that dock owners disconnect/turn off electricity to their docks during this time of high water.

 The no-wake policy at the Lake of the Ozarks has been lifted, effective immediately.  The order went into effect Thursday due to high lake levels following Wednesday’s heavy rains. The Department of Public Safety and the Missouri State Highway Patrol have been monitoring conditions at the Lake and now say that water levels have dropped sufficiently to allow for the restrictions to be lifted.

Water levels dropped quickly thanks in part to Ameren Missouri opening the floodgates of the Bagnell Dam, allowing water to rapidly be released into the Osage River. The goal was to get the level of Lake of the Ozarks to 660 feet.

    • The Gophers:    
    • It’s still a great season. Hopefully Fleck can build a sustainable program. 
    • It most certainly is amp-hours related, although the numbers vary somewhat by discharge rate.    The RC number on a battery is basically the amp hours at a specified discharge rate.   That curve above is for a particular battery.    If you multiply the times by the discharge rate, looks like it is for 10 or 11 amp hour battery like the one in a Vexilar.   Multiply those currents by 8 or 10 for a trolling motor battery, so like 4 hours at 20 amps instead of 2.4 amps.      Basically using one set of batteries for two different voltages strikes me as a bad idea.
    • Lead acid battery discharge is voltage related not amp/current. Amp hours are time based on about a 15% drop in voltage which is the same voltage where a DC motor stops turning. 12v battery flat volts is about 10.5v & 36v battery at 30v & motors stop turning. If you don't turn the motor switch off, discharge will continue down to 0 volts but battery will recover when re-charged. Not good for the battery to drop volts to 0v as it reduces the life of the battery. Lead acid discharge rate chart showing volt loss.
    • Just one of those games where we didn't get the bounces to go our way like earlier in the season. So.........win the next two games, get absolutely crushed by Ohio State and then head to the Rose Bowl. I can live with that.  
    • All you guys still don't get it.   I didn't explain it well enough.    There are three batteries, each can hold 80 Amp hours.      When the 24 volt motor is in use, two of the batteries use some of their capacity, equal for each battery.   So let's say you use 10 amps for two hours.   Now you have two batteries with 60 and one with 80.   Run all three (36 volt motor) for 6 hours at 10 and two batteries will be totally discharged and one will still have some charge.   Any further current draw will potentially damage the two batteries that are totally discharged.      Of course the 36 volt motor will probably quit working as soon as two of the batteries are flat, but the concern is there.
    • pulled the sled out, turned the key after putting in fresh gas, and it fired up spot on. seems to want to go, as it jumped at a little throttle, bring on the snow, its ready.
