Lake Cumberland plays host to one of largest V-bottom boats

(Continued)

Somerset —

The Tellico River rises in the westernmost mountains of North Carolina, but it flows mainly through Monroe County, Tennessee. It is a major tributary of the Little Tennessee River and the namesake of Tellico Reservoir, a reservoir created by Tellico Dam, which impounds the lower reaches of the Tellico River and the Little Tennessee River and was famous during the 1970s for the snail darter controversy.
The big yacht will have room to stretch its rudder on Lake Cumberland. Tellico Lake, its previous home, has 15,560 acres of surface and 357 miles of shoreline. When Lake Cumberland returns to normal, hopefully next sum-mer, yachtsmen may explore 65,530 acres of water and hide among wooded coves along 1,255 miles of scenic shoreline.
