Braun Bay

If you are standing in the lake and fluid filtered through you into the lake, there would be no change because you were displacing the same amount whether in you or out of you. If you bring a bottle...

Dredging

Maintenance dredging can be permitted. Marinas do it. You have to hang silt fences in the water and other restrictions and the local Conservation Commission will delay the permit, at least in...

Alton outflow

water pump?

Using your boat to dredge can add sand etc to the cooling system where it becomes lodged. As flow through the system is impeded, you can overheat and cause long term problems. My old marina slip...

Not Kidding

Nobody is kidding you.
The No Anchor Zone is well marked. The markers are submerged and as the water level drops (Oops, is drawn down) the markers appear. Of course, some years the draw down is...

Big boat?

I'm not sure what a big boat is. In the 50's my family owned a 30' cruiser. A big boat for the day. Now, a 25' (common) deep vee will throw a bigger wake, never mind what a 20' wake boat will do. ...

You're right

You're right., Launch ramps and parking lots were mostly built before we were worried about milfoil, zebra mussels and contaminated bilge water. The Public Water Access Advisory Board (PWAAB) from...

Mine is manual, so I agree with others that you shouldn't need it except for a couple of summer months. I believe some of the more sophisticated machines would have a humidity sensor and shut down...

Clean Drain and Dry

I hope the plans will include space for boats coming in and out of the launch ramps will have space to clean drain and dry away from the ramp itself so that potentially contaminated bilge water, bait...

Missed it this year. How many stem boats had dogs? Had I been a spectator boat, Daisy would have been on the bow. Her friends, Brandy and Kodiak, more restrained, would sit in the stern.

No kitty litter

Whether Septic or sewer, that's not the place to be dumping kitty litter. Same with "flushable" wipes. Regardless of the label, they don't break down and cause significant additional...

Transfer station

If you can get it to the (Mk, right?) transfer station, they'll take it. There are lots of services that will pick up and remove almost anything that isn't fastened down, but then you have to pay.

Diy?

A bicycle shop may have used large balloon wheels/tires that can be either attached to the boat or used to build a cradle. I have a Sandusky Garden cart that I've used to carry 100's lbs of stone. ...
