Nice work with the photos, Paul. :) There is also a small pond with a little island at the end of I-390 N where it joins the Lake Ontario Parkway. It is accessable from Island Cottage Rd. Not sure about weeds or clarity. I have seen someone running a gas or fast electric boat there from time to time. One thing we need to consider is what would our options be if we lose a boat and have to go in after it. Of course this never happens, right Dave? :laugh:

CI, thanks...glad to help the group out!

I agree, I know for sure that the pond at Brighton Park will not allow any boats or canoes, not sure about MCC. However Mendon Ponds allows sailboats and canoes. I have a canoe and can bring it along if we need to retreive a sub. Do we need to invest in a diver's mask and snorkle too ? :D

Will you be headed towards the small pond near Lake Ontario Parkway? If not, let me know and I can head up there and scope it out. Also in Braddocks Bay area and all through the parkway there are small ponds. I have fished there from time to time.

My subs never sink!!!!!!! :p :p They just refuse to come back up when asked. Sometimes you have to yell at them. :D Great job Paul!! We used to run at that pond at the end of 390 Yearsssssss ago. Fast electric's. I don't know how it looks now. I was not running subs then. Also the end of Long pond itself was a nice place to run boats. The lake end. Now Larry has to finish his sub!!!!! BD. :laugh:
