This cable is about 100 metres long but the lake is only about 70 metres long,as we couldnt wait to see how it would go ,we are in the process of digging another dam about 350 metres long but is going to take a bit more time , when we tensioned this cable up we just about lifted our 500 atv off the ground so we are pretty excited about the lift we can achieve over a longer distance but will keep posting as more progression is made all we need is a little more water and it is raining as we speak.
