Fuel burn?

I'm sure there's room here for a snide remark. Mostly we now cruise at 8-12 knots. Nobody spills anything and the galley crew doesn't dump hors d'oeuvres on the deck. No need to go someplace fast...

which island?

I can't figure out why posters ask these questions and don't say where they are. Various contractors focus on geographic areas, so my guy in Gilford may not be much use in Wolfeboro or...

Tough item

Even dealers are saying, "If you don't have a place to store it., don't buy it." Summer and winter. Now is the time to get storage commitments for 2022. Private sale is even harder than dealer, as...

I agree with your clarification. The main point was that new RSA's are not necessarily needed when towns have the ability to control local swim areas....

Disappointed

I think what you found is what Camp is intended to be: like camp.
I'm sorry to hear this report. My daughter and my niece both loved Camp, so we tried to go at least once a year. Their kids (10-18)...

A paddle boarder who falls is a swimmer and may be distanced from the PB. At that point s/he may be swimming near docks, where, beyond common sense, it is just not allowed. It's like going hiking...

rent or lease?

Town code?

Paddle boarding is only a (mis)step away from swimming. I remeber coming into the Meredith docks and a group of PB renters went in a line across the docks. Boats entering could see them, perhpas,...

Cause?

What caused the water leaks? Is there no insurance? In any event Sevpro or Servicemaster do water damage cleanup routinely and have the right equipment to prevent further damage.

I agree with Marinalou. Mis en Place is top notch. Based on other posts, it is not a "cup of tea" for Thinkxingu and I suggest he not spend his $$$$ here.
