Why am I not surprised? I think I could say that heavier boats weigh more than lighter boats and you guys would find some reason to disagree. But that's ok, I expect that those who are reading all...

Dave,
I can make the same wakes come from my boat at any speeds between 15 and 35 MPH by playing with my trim and throttle. I refuse to believe that the boat in those photos cannot be planed just...

Chip,
The cause will never be "speeding" so long as any speed is legal. If I run you over on Rte 93 while going 60 MPH, it will surely be recorded as "reckless operation", "operator inattention",...

John,
you also raise an interesting issue;

Looking only at the nightime portion of HB162, it is clear that the Coast Guard is in support of the 25MPH limit, if not slower.

While all of the...

This is a great point. Imagine the death and destruction if this power boat had been going say 90, as 9% of NH's citizen feel is ok? At that speed, the operator's reaction time would have been the...

It appears that all of the 9% of NH voters who oppose HB162 are hanging on this forum. Were one to use only this forum as a basis, one might mistakenly believe that HB162 does not have overwhelming...

Here's more

Notice that the opposers to HB162 actually got into double-digits (11%) in the last question. Now who's the "small minority trying to selfishly impose their will on the majority'?

Thank you

Stan,

Stan,
You are correct here...HB162 in not only about GFBL boats. It applies to all boats equally. HB162 is more a case of "all speeding boats against everyone else". But rather than turn yet another...
