Going from Meredith to Rattlesnake is all open water, an easy trip for experienced islanders. Not many buoys to look for. I would be more interested in your experience seeing other boats. What day...

Agree. And understood, but what's the cost of going back and de-contaminating the water? Or periodically replacing gravel that washes away?
There's always a trade-off.

How are we rewarding work when we're paying folks to stay home?

Thanks, Rich

All good points, Rich. It never really occurred to me to use radar to see other boats on the lake. Too many, too fast, on a crowded night to track on civilian radar. If it is foggy, everybody...

Agreed

When we stay at the AMC Cold River Camp, we go to the Stow Store for ice cream. A "Baby" is at least three scoops. Then a high carb dinner. Climbing mountains is a great way to burn carbs.

Flir?

I've had two(used) boats with GPS and Radar. I'm comfortable with both, but rarely used them. My wife drives mostly now and made me take the GPS off the dash because it blocked her vision. The...

Diamondshine

You've seen my posts elsewhere. I think Diamondshine and ceramic coating can do exactly what you want. My 1994 Sea Ray looks brand new. They can give you an estimate on the phone: 293-0378. Not...

Now that we know we're talking about .42 acres, the discussion about hunting snowmobiling etc seems pretty irrelevant. The OP should just call his agent in MA give him the address and be done. No...

Use it or lose it

The airlines solved this issue years ago. You're not there? Stand by's get your seat. Change of plans? Fine, that will be $25.

For those who go to the same place frequently, we like...

New name

They changed the name to Schooner Green's maybe a year+ ago? I think did some expansion and a new menu? I haven't been to Wolfeboro since Covid, but Green's was always a favorite.

Also means higher tips per dinner served. Overall, a better dining experience, but perhaps less often for some consumers. In time, the service businesses will likely catch up to manufacturing and...

I'm curious about what "near the septic" means. Tank? Leach field? Other disturbance such as gravel back fill and not much topsoil in that specific area?

The OP has not responded. That tells me he applied the first coat of stain that he now wants to remove. As noted earlier, probably on fresh PT, and over the water. If that's wrong, he should...
