I'm amazed at the lack of understanding here. The State of NH does not get any of the local property tax. In March, you pass a town budget. On April 1, assessments are set. Allowing time for all...

I like the "No Sharks Here" idea. Remember, we got national publicity with the "Brake for Moose" bumper sticker campaign. From Labor Day through FITN Primary day, NH is in the spotlight.

Disagree. I think the post is fine. Slow and headed into the wind is accepted practice. A lot less likely to take on water compared to riding sideways in the trough or having water come over the...

"Starboard Quarterr"?

Woodsy, I took Barney's phrase "starboard quarter" to mean "stern quarter", and thus overtaking. If it was bow quarter up to 112.5, you are correct.

SeaBob

Looks like fun and more my skill level than the personal ski machine. No spotter required, but you need a Diver Down flag if you go underwater, I guess. I think they said they were on Martha's...

Emergency landings

Sure. When I was learning to fly, various instructors would pull the throttle and ask where I was going to land, and tell me to set up my approach. Good habit patterns stick with you. For example,...

Congratulations on the new boat and welcome to the Forum.
Ablative paint should just wear off as you use the boat, no need to scrub unless the boat has been unused for a long time and has...

Old

This old thread seems to come up every year. Only the name of the town changes.
If spending doesn't go up, and the assessment does go up as required by state law to keep pace with market value,...

Canvas?

Sounds like you made good decisions for the circumstances. Glad it all worked out. Perhaps a full enclosure canvas is in order? I have seen 'toons with side curtains that are "stored" hanging from...

Dock it

Yup, yup. I've headed to the nearest dock more than once. Everybody hospitable. And probably a similar number come into our dock.

Good idea. I always used a leather punch (Pliers with a rotating wheel on one handle to select hole size) and a drop of candle wax to seal the threads in the material before adding the snap. I...

Island vs Mainland?

I'm always happy to have somebody tie up to my dock, introduce themselves and talk about having a great day on the lake. We have lots of fishermen, etc. Why is this a problem for people? On the...

Noise

It wasn't speed, safety or anything else that killed GFBL. It was noise. The same will happen with wakeboats although it will be blamed on dock damage and erosion or similar.

Change the by-laws

Get a fistful of proxies before the next association meeting. Propose that "Stupid rules require a 2/3 majority to pass. A "stupid' rule is determined by a simple majority, with a secret ballot." ...

X Cruise?

Not many replies so far. Not surprising as this isn't a lakes region topic. Nevertheless, nobody yet has said "Take this cruise"? Perhaps a river cruise is a better choice? We're looking at a...

they're everywhere

Sounds like everybody has kit. There's probably one in my tool kit, buried. Ask the guy in the boat slip next to you. Bet he has one.

Greek Islands

We did a Greek Island Tour a few years ago with "Classic Journeys". Six in our group although they would have gone to 10. At 12-14, they would have considered splitting the group.

Pwc

The key here is that this is a PWC, not a boat pulling a skier. We have no need for an observer on a PWC although everything else is similar to the personal ski machine.
BTW, there are certain...
