I think many marinas which allow use of their ramps will have a driver do the backing for you (hourly rate?) You may want to establish a relationship with a marina and this would be a start. ...

Use local #

I find 293-2300 easier to remember.. The local numbers give direct response to th Tow boat captain. Some years ago, I called the 800 number on my key fob card and they got all confused about being...

Agreed

Agreed--it's not just covid, but that's an easy thing to point to, especially as it it very quickly. The other things under discussion, as you note, have been gradual.

For young folks looking for...

Changing times

I think we're seeing a different kind of eating out. When I got my first restaurant job, they trained me to be a short order cook and cook's assistant. I was sixteen; there were bunches of small...

1. Sawyer's is several hundred feet from my boat slip. 5 stars
2. Outdoor tables where I can bring my dog. 5 stars
3. Great ice cream. 5 stars
4. It was never gourmet food--don't try to judge it...

2015?

That's a pretty old quote, from a market that is unlike NH and related to a "no tipping" issue. I would suggest that in the last year or two, kitchen staff pay remained steady, per hour worked. ...

Standard

Favorite standard: Cheeseburger, O Rings an a Coffee Frappe. Unfortunately, this is allowed only once a year. Maybe a little more in 2021? Not gourmet, but walking distance, and Daisy can join us...

New niche

I see the Spirit fitting a niche that really isn't heavily served right now. As the smallest boat in their fleet, she'll be able to operate out of places presently not served meal/dinner cruises,...

Not very intrusive

As a (former) pilot, I'm amazed at some of the comments and negativity here. Yes, a plane makes some noise on take-off, but not more than many boats. The difference is, in a few seconds, at 80 mph...

Loon Nesting area

It's unfortunate that "Loon Nesting Area" on the chart draws people to the site instead of the intended warning to stay clear.

If the number of units goes from 77 down to 36, the septic may be able to handle the reduced load. Docks around the lake are selling for $100K in 24-48 hours. Attach a nice condo and sales for...

price of wood

So, if I owned a wood lot, this is a good time to harvest? Why aren't those owners doing that? All the steps I can think of, harvest, transport, mill, transport again to the retailer, seem to be...

VRB airbnb

The online websites may turn up a cancellation. The agencies you would call often use these sites, vrbo and airbnb. When my daughter wants to go someplace, she just checks daily and turns up a...

DES follows this forum, and they control the dam, etc. They have many masters, Winnipesaukee, and everybody downstream. It's difficult, at best.

Satellite Internet

I've never had TV on the boat and the family never wanted TV in the camp. Now I have a new to me boat (2003) that has a TV and a SeaTel satellite antenna that is supposed to connect to satellite...

I had some floating docks once. Three sections washed up on my beach. Never did find the owner. My neighbor considered using them but too small, and unstable. I think the docks at MP HQ in...

100?

1000 gallons is a lot considering that most islanders use 100 gallon tanks and a two wheel cart. Call whoever you use for regular barge service--they should be able to connect you with somebody who...

Owner?

All in the right place

As Dave has implied above, boats are covered under boat policies. Cars are covered under car policies and personal property is covered under a Homeowners policy. There are a few extensions, e.g....

not covered

Homeowners insurance doesn't cover motor vehicle that should be covered under an auto policy. (Or a boat or trailer policy. Maybe your tractor)
