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...

Coverage has deteriorated

I noticed an increase in dropped calls starting in May as summerfolk made their presence known and it has lasted all summer. I have a feeling we'll see better service starting this month as the...

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...

Better Safe Than Sorry

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...

Teaching Neophytes

I have helped more than a few new boaters learn the ropes when it comes handling a boat. I am an experienced "OK" captain, meaning I know what I know, and more importantly, what I don't know. I am...

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.

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

Not Everything

I don't "piss and moan" about everything. I piss and moan about specific things.

Get used to it.

Do Not Ignore The Boneheads

It is better to point out their idiocy if for no other reason than to warn others. That the bonehead did something extremely dangerous is something we should not ignore. If we ignore it we'll only...

July 20th, 1969

Angry Can't Tell 30 Feet From 150?

As I waited along with a good number of other boaters, a Cap'n Bonehead came through the crowd of anchored boats while on plane. He...

The millimeter wave bands for 5G are unlikely to be deployed here anytime in the near-to-middling future. As mentioned in another comment, 3G networks will start being phased out starting at the end...
