Default Spreckles Lake in Golden Gate Park

I'm renting an apartment pretty close to Spreckles Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. I noticed quite a few people use the lake for RCs. Seems like a nice place for scale boating or sailing, or electric speed boating. No one seems to run any gas ones there, it's nice and quiet so I wouldn't want to be the one to ruin the calm.

Are there any SF boaters in this forum? Specifically anyone boat at Spreckles?

A car guy in the boat forums! Slumming it?
As you probably noticed, I do not live anywhere near you but have seen a lot written in here on Spreckles Lake. Gas and nitro boats have been pretty much been driven out of that lake as they didn't like the noise. At one time they tried to rule that anything running there could not be above a certain dB level which was actually quieter than the ambient noise level of the area.
Your best shot may be to do a search for Speckles Lake to find RCU members that boat there.

Hey Sheograth,

I run nitro at Spreckles Lake on Saturday mornings.  We are allowed to run gas and nitro tuesday, thursday and saturday from 10am - 1pm.  There is actually a really big group that runs on the weekend.  We all try to get there before 10am.

Cool, we all get there early so we can get as much run time as possible.  Look for both my boats to be there.
