The last and only time I saw that happen in my lifetime was in February 1980. Different sport. Different time. And we were a different country.

Funny boat story

Last month, my wife and I were docked at the Center Harbor town docks. Slightly windy day. Brand new Monterey (25 feet or so) is trying to pull in to the docks that are in front of the town beach...

Where does that leave former customers of the Pine Cone that do not wish to spend an arm and a leg on a pizza or casual dinner during the winter?

Pine Cone

My wife and I actually liked the food at the Pine Cone.
I guess everyone's tastes are different.

It used to be nice to go out for food in the lakes region with the wife and spend less than $100.

Six pack - buoy missing?

I went through the six pack on Sunday and it looked like the middle black buoy was missing, or maybe obscured by the high water level. Anyone else notice that?

Wakeboats playing loud rap music.

Speed limit now versus then

I was opposed to the speed limit back when the law passed. I never thought it was about safety - it was my understanding that the real culprit in most fatal accidents had been alcohol.

Today, I'm...

250 feet setback

I should have looked this up before my previous post. The following language is in House Bill 1071:

250 foot setback - safety

I contrast this issue with the speed limit issue back in 2008 (I think that was the year). In my view, the speed limit got traction and passed because of 1) the perceived issue of safety and 2) a...

I think most of your assumptions are spot on - with my current prop setup, my top speed is just a little over 50 mph.

I may be too simplistic in my approach here, but I basically take the gallons...

I'm not sure how this equates to MPG, but I get around 5 GPH at 30 MPH in my 24 foot Four Winns bowrider with the 5.3 liter Volvo Penta. That seems to be the sweet spot.

Marina slip fee increases

Has anyone else seen substantial marina slip fee increases for 2022? I have a 10% increase over last year in my Moultonborough marina. I guess it makes sense given the lack of available slips and...

Speed versus wakes

I have said this before. In 30 years of boating on the lake, I have never been put in danger by boats going >45 mph. In the last 10 years, I have gotten bow-swamped, shaken and stirred a number of...

Nope - can't do that. Someone might be offended. For instance, it is also National Coming Out Day. I'm not joking - google it.

I hope NH keeps it Columbus Day.

Ice cream boat

Did anyone recall seeing the Moultonborough ice cream boat this past summer? I did not see it out on the lake and was wondering if it was still in operation.
Thanks.

A lot as changed since this thread was started

This thread started back in the spring when the lake level seemed pretty low. Not it seems we are not too far off from Descant's goal. My boat is higher off the dock right now than it usually is...
