A friend of mine did his first over niter on Lodore in 83, seemed like the were letting out the full generation power, I believe 4600, plus the by pass tunnells at 4000, and it was going out the overflow. I think they felt it was at about 12,000. Reports of huge holes in upper and lower Disaster, and very fast. When we were on Lodore last year, he said that after all of these years of his experiance gained, he wished that he could see that level again to compare it to what he knows about boating now. Guess he got it, well close any way. We picked up a cancelation for the 8th of June.
Be safe out there,Dennis
