Smile Gilford

I pay $2500 for my 20-foot runabout on a private dock in Gilford. I think the only reason I get it for that much is because I've been renting that slip for 16 years and have helped maintain the other...

Indeed! I use WiFi calling at home and was using an older NetGear dual band router. Coverage was spotty in some places (using 5GHz). Switched over to a newer Linksys AC1900 router and now coverage is...

A Change

At least Bike Week won't be disrupted since it's been moved to August due to this whole Covid-19 debacle. But you can still try the jump then if'n your willing!

Quite A Few Boats Out There

I've noticed the same thing. Some of the first boats I saw were fishing boats, but lately it's been a good mix. I've also seen a couple of jetskis (yesterday).

My boat is getting launched some...

A Way To Keep Your Property Taxes Down

One thing that I have found a lot of people who complain about their property taxes have in common?

They didn't bother to attend town/school district meeting or vote. I understand that some can't...

Last Day

It was perfect weather – sunny with temperatures in the upper 50’s, no wind, and not a cloud in the sky.

It was a little past 4PM when I started the engine on the Official Weekend Pundit Lake...

It was a great summer!

I have to agree that it was a great summer. We were out on the lake alot this summer, probably the most we've been out in over 15 years. We weren't 'summered out', but weather has played a small part...

Has Anyone Else Noticed?

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that folks started pulling their boats out earlier than usual?

I am one of those "Early In, Late Out" boaters and have seen the marinas and boat yards...

Cable Costs

One has to remember that when it comes to the cost of the TV portion of your cable bills the cable companies have little control. It is the content providers who set those rates. The cable MSOs pass...

It's Been A Crazy Boating Season

I have noticed the same thing all of you have. It's been one of the worst years I've seen in regard to a bigger than normal number of Cap'n Boneheads and their companion Cap'n Oblivious.

This past...

What Do You Mean There Aren't Sharks?

Of course there are! Mutant fresh water sharks that infest the Lakes Region! They're almost as bad as the gene-engineered fisher cats that escaped from that gene lab hidden under the White Mountains....

Not A Bad Idea

Dealing with boats coming from the Welch's Island side or Saunder's Bay side into Glendale can be an adventure. If they're transiting through between Locke's and Pig Islands and they're on plane the...

I have done likewise.

I automatically assume that other boaters can't see me, are distracted, don't understand or don't care about he "rules of the road", or are affected by the chemical overload...

Way too much

Me, too. It's one reason I try to get most of my boating in during the week, particularly late in the day. I've seen more than a few gorgeous sunsets while out on the lake this summer.

Liev?

I thought he made a great "Mr. Clark" in the movie version of Tom Clancy's Sum Of All Fears.

Another possibility is Adam Baldwin.

Public Hearing

I for one will attend the public hearing in Gilford on the 26th. I will voice my opinion that more lighted buoys would be a more cost effective means of warning off boaters from The Witches.

VHF Handhelds & Antennas

The "rubber duck" antennas on handhelds tend to be more like leaky dummy loads. I have made a few 'duck' antennas for my VHF marine handhelds and they worked pretty well, though they were a little...

Ayuh

Yup. Kept trying to relate the places he mentioned versus the actual Laconia and came up with nothing. A little research on the 'Net and use of Google Maps would have fixed that particular problem.

How About...

I was thinking someone like Jason Statham (without the British accent) or Dwayne Johnson. Possibly Chris Hemsworth?
