Deja Vu

Seems like a lot of the same issues when you read the threads about rejuvenating the Weirs. We saw a lot of the same arguments in Manchester. Twenty-five +/- years ago the SNHU arena was built...

A good model

If I belong to a snowmobile club in NH, I get a discount on my sled registration. If I own 5 sleds, they all get the discount, even though I only paid club dues once. This model (10-12 years old?)...

Alton law enforcement

Obviously not friendly to business, as are most administrators of town docks. e.g. Gilford, Laconia, etc. I'm a little surprised that the Dive didn't foresee this. At the same time, it would have...

Improvements?

"Improvements" are only improvements if somebody wants to buy them. (Willing buyer, willing seller) No market, no value, no tax. If I put on an addition, and nobody wants to buy my indoor movie...

Navionics

If you already use and like the Navionics app, I would expect the chartplotter display to look the same. A convenience to me as opposed to working with two different displays.
