Be careful of what you ask for

On the western entrance to the Braun Bay sandbar there is a rock. Generations of local kids (myself included) have called it "Picnic Rock". We would paddle, or motor to the rock and tie up for a...

I have a new (retirement) job! I'm working on the Mount as a deck hand and engineer.

Fire Boat

First, this post is about a fire boat for Gilford. Not who has the biggest "post" on the Forum.

250K sounds like a lot of money and it is. Let's do the math.

Were they here first?

Pond boy:

I really don't think that the geese were here first. These birds are migratory and in the past have only stopped to "visit" the Lake. In the past 60 odd years that I have observed the...

Nav. class

Rich:

Not so much. It is mostly chart work and piloting. It does not look at inland boating so much but it will teach you to use the Bizer to get around the Lake. You can pull out your cell...
