Typically I take the boat out to Lake Tyler. I caution against taking it to Lake Palestine due to all of the low lying remnants of trees under the surface of the water. I strongly recommend taking the boat to lake Tyler. Renters can bring coolers of beverages and food, no glass. My boat is the only MB B52 Sport boat on Lake Tyler. Its great for wakeboarding, surfing, and water sports. The boat sits higher out of the water than most and also has a 6.2 Ford Raptor motor in it. She roars to life when you crank her up. This boat wont fail to impress!
