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

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?

You can find the owner and more details for almost any property on the assessor's database for each town. In many cases it will also tell you when, last sold and price. Who cares? Leave people...

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....

Getting there?

Owning an island property pretty much means owning or having guaranteed access to a mainland boat dock. Note the stories here about long term customers losing their slip at various marinas. When...

Gold

Fox Business news was talking about wood and gold in the same segment. It seems it is still possible to discover an unknown source of gold, but there are no more undiscovered forests. Price of a...

Small Town?

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)

Other places?

There's a lot of focus here on the Weirs Channel, but the law has to be applicable to many many places.
I used to have a larger boat with big props. The problem in the Weirs Channel wasn't steerage...

Career?

I think if you buy one GI house for, say $2mm, and within a year, sell it for $3.mm, that's a career. You don't have to do any more for a couple of years to put "successful RE Career" on your...

Agreed

Easy Peasy. For the many of us who have taken this route, we're fine. We relax while the rest of you sweat over prime less pumps. Do a search--there are other threads on this matter.

Well pump

Next time your jet pump goes--consider a well pump. Several posters hewre have that as a solution. No foot valve, no prime, and it's under water so you don't hear it start and stop all the time....
