Assuming "ski craft" are prohibited on Squam Lake, 2 person Sparks would be illegal there. Any LEO could enforce the ski craft law and the state legislature regulates the law.

There are definitely 2 person PWCs manufactured today. I think Yamaha and Kawasaki still make 1 person PWCs too.

Just wanted to point out that a <13' vessel that carries 3 or more people is not a "ski craft" in NH, the way I read it. Otherwise my 10' 2" dinghy that carries up to 4 and tops out around 23 MPH...

Pretty much all of them. The state does not want to incarcerate anyone for first time possession of a little coke.

If you do upgrade your navigation light bulbs to LEDs, be sure to use USCG certified bulbs. Many non-USCG bulbs will cause interference with a VHF radio, rendering it useless. I realize that most...

That's unfortunate. Glad it has not been an issue where I go. I doubt it's urine that's caused it though.

That's a real bummer. I'd try taking it apart and see what's really broken. Might not need that many special tools to fix it. They aren't terribly complicated.

Pee in a backyard pool would not bother me at all, but then I've had sushi in Mexico, so I'm probably not typical when it comes to germ worries.

If there was any sign of water in the old gas, I bet the check valve ball is rusted and sticking in place.

Not even close. The next thing that comes up just means you get to learn something else and maybe get to (justifiably) buy more tools. It gets easier and easier the more you do it.
