Fwm

We have a 4-ft by 20-ft FWM dock as going longer in our case would require floating the dock. As it is we are 7-ft deep and dropping at the 20-ft length. As with all of these questions its all...

Change

Agreed. The US needs to do our part regardless of what India and China do, but we do need to put pressure on them (by whatever means) to get them to change. 40% of the world population lives in two...

DES Questions

We removed an old set of cribbing (probably 10 tons worth of boulders) that was previously used to hold up a dock, that unfortunately we could not grandfather in. I contacted the DES directly with...

Building

If you are dead-set on building new, then I cannot stress this enough. Design it with an architect, unless it will be a simple design. It will cost you ~$30K up front on a $300K house, but you will...

Winter Island Access

All-
I brought this up as a topic a couple of years ago and got mixed responses. What is the best way to legally access the islands in Alton (Sleepers and Rattlesnake)? I don't wan't to go through...

Island Electrician

We are in Alton, on an island, and are looking for a reputable electrician to come out and remove the meter and line from our existing camp, so that we can re-side the camp. Meter is screwed...

Seasonal Docks

No oversight here. I've had a seasonal dock for 4 years and have no tax on it and never have.

They definitely should NOT be taxing you on what is truly a seasonal dock. I did a full assessment...

Seasonal Docks

My seasonal dock and those of my neighbors (in Alton) are not taxed. The permanent docks are taxed at roughly $25 a square foot for value. So a permanent dock at 40-ft length by 5-ft wide (200 sq....

Fees

I couldn't agree more with the post that said, "if YOU want to pay more than go ahead". Believe me the state WILL take your additional money if you send it to them. More fees will just mean that...

Maxum-
I am curious (and a bit jealous) about your setup, to be able to access an island this late in the season.
I assume you have a permanent dock on the island, but how to you keep the mainland...

It could be worse

Honda engines speak for themselves. They last forever and start first pull every time. Now I wont defend charging nearly $3K for a snowblower because I wouldn't pay for it either, but its the same...

Iced

According to folks at West Alton, the marina basin was iced in on November 17th, 2018. It has probably lost most if not all of that ice by now, but it did already freeze. Much to my chagrin, since I...

Survey

Codeman I agree with you that Adverse Possession sounds like BS. I'm just trying to follow the law. I think a 55mph highway speed limit is BS too, but when you get pulled over the cop doesn't care...
