You should be able to get a discount on any new boat.

I say *should*, because my experience suggests that Whaler's are tough to get/find a deal on.

A friend of mine spent years looking at...

I will tell you that this is a FANTASTIC time of year to be looking for a used boat. People who are looking to get out of boating, or are looking to trade their boat in, are doing so a lot this time...

I would reach out to EastCoast Flightcraft. They appear to have at least 3 used 262s on their used boat site, maybe one of them has some filler cushions you could use as reference? Or maybe they...

Ballast system

When I used to keep my boat at Parker Marine, which also has a low bridge issue, my dealer offered the idea of a ballast system, like the wake boats use, to help weigh down the boat to lower it in...

The video was taken at the Marina in Jonathan's Landing, which is a community and all the slips (and boats) in there are for people who own condos in there.

Of course he's in the right, he can fish wherever he wants.

Thanks!

I definitely wouldn't consider the "alternate year" options. In this case, there are 8 units, and 8 moorings (1 per unit) and a day dock setup that would support 5 boats. I'm not sure...

Good questions

I haven't found "the house" with a slip yet, so those are all things I'll be thinking of.

The association itself is in Gilford, so open to the broads, so I would imagine wind and waves are a...

Yup

Yup, I do now. Completely forgot about the rule and a few years back I got pulled over for something else and got a ticket for not having the bell.

I had to go buy a bell, and have the place I...

Mooring vs. Slips

Hi all,

We have started looking for a place up on the lake after all these years. Mostly looking at associations/condos of some kind, going to open houses, etc... We went to one this weekend,...

Since I haven't seen anyone mention it, Cobalt has a new outboard boat:

I will admit

For the last decade, we rented a house every summer in Blackey Cove. The house sold last year, we will miss it dearly, it's a wonderful location on the lake and I deeply envy each of you that have a...

Yes, sometimes

I work for a boat dealer from time to time, mostly the boat shows. The answer is yes and no and it depends on the dealer. Dealer's pay a large sum of money to bring their boats down and put them in...

Mutually exclusive

Don't think the two are necessarily mutually exclusive either. We rent a house in a "smallish" cove that affords a pretty spectacular view. However, thanks to the influx of the wake surfing boats,...

Model numbers are pointless

You can't use model numbers to judge boats anymore. It used to be "240" or "220" meant something. Modern boat builders use the model numbers to try to get a boat into competition with other boats...

New boaters

I can't say that I've noticed more performance boats, but I've only been up a few times.

What I have noticed is what must be a ton of new boaters. I saw several boats on the wrong side of markers...
