Lake level before the dam.

I have a new (retirement) job! I'm working on the Mount as a deck hand and engineer.

I am often asked about the Lake level. For the life of me I can't figure out what the Lake level was before...

Fire Boat

First, this post is about a fire boat for Gilford. Not who has the biggest "post" on the Forum.

250K sounds like a lot of money and it is. Let's do the math.

Over the 20 to 25 years that...

Light in the sky?

Last night, Friday the 24th around 11PM we were frolicking in the hot tub on Braun bay. There was a big, I mean BIG white light with a contrail that fell from the sky in the east. It came from...

Were they here first?

Pond boy:

I really don't think that the geese were here first. These birds are migratory and in the past have only stopped to "visit" the Lake. In the past 60 odd years that I have observed the...

A loony solution...

I may be all wet (Yes, it is a pun) but I have noticed that where there are loons there are no geese.

I maintain a loon habitat for the LPC and I can tall you that while loons look cool and...

Weave a web?

Not sure, but we have had dock spiders ever since I can remember. We have always called them "Woodies". They used to be creepy but now they seem to be more interesting. I have never heard of anyone...

Nav. class


Not so much. It is mostly chart work and piloting. It does not look at inland boating so much but it will teach you to use the Bizer to get around the Lake. You can pull out your cell...

New Navigation course

There is a cool new on line navigation course being presented by Boat US. It is very through and self paced.

So here is the deal. The course costs $40 but if you enter the "promo code" 0130208...

We got a new Police Chief in Moultonberry a couple of years ago. He is trying to channel his "enthusiastic" officer's energy away from speed traps to crime prevention. We can see a lot more patrols...

This one makes sence

As Capt. Tim pointed out, there are very good reasons to license the aquatherms. You are changing the Lake with the machines and if there is a problem it is a method to contact the owners who may be...

Lighten up a little!

Radio Man:

If you haven't already given it some thought and since this will be a home built try removable decking.

We pull an aluminum dock every year and wish that the weight of the decking...

Not that expensive

Using an Aquatherm is really not that expensive.

If you pay a dock company pull your dock in the fall and put it back in in the spring you are talking some big money. Probably around $400 each...

I have absolutely no problem with Annie or his prices. I was just asking if there was a 'Do it yourself" job that I could do.

Moultonborough refuse gardens....

The Moultonborough transfer station does take waste oil. They heat with it.

For a great afternoon with the kids I would highly recommend the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in Holderness.

Vessel stops

I am a great fan of the NHMP. Always have been. But I do have a problem with random vessel stops.

Page 27 of the NH boaters guide states that the Marine Patrol Officers have the right to pull...

I know that bear!


I think that I have seen that one recently. He has been all over Shaker Jerry and Kona.

There is also a big bruin with a sow that hangs out by the Moultonborough school.
