As mentioned by bilproject, those who have an island camp that has been passed down may have difficulty buying a mainland slip.

Disagree. I bought a motel to condo conversion in 1980 specifically for STR. Many of the other buyers at the time did the same. Yes, the owners wanted to retire and move, and, as with many other...

Yeah. I misstated. It's amazing how war has changed from masses of men in open fields to simply blowing things up with airplanes and missiles.

Exactly. SC seceded in 1860, followed by other states in 1861. As they formed their new government, they took over various government facilities, mostly peacefully, I believe. No skirmishes like...

Fill'er up

I filled the tanks last October, should be good for most of 2022 until time to fill again. Regardless of price, fuel is a small part of the total cost of running my boat.

Did I misunderstand? I thought Fred Fuller took a lot of advance payments, then didn't deliver and then went out of business. Rymes (no 'h') took over to make good to people who were caught in the...

Haven't we covered that? Wouldn't exhaust gases set off the C O detector? Would the reading from the Fire Dept. still be 0%?

details?

It would be interesting to know what you get for that price. Indoor? Outdoor? Shrinkwrap? Heated or unheated building? Launch and retrieve? Are you on a trailer? What marina?

Ministry of truth

It did not happen. That's why the statues of Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis are being taken down and the history books are being corrected.

Independent service companies

Right. Al Terry and Heritage do a lot on TV. I've never used either of them. Angie's list probably has some local names, plumbers and HVAC folks who are not oil dealers.

Devil's Advocate

I agree that secession is not a good plan, but there have been advocates for many decades, probably since we agreed to the USA Constitution and they voted "No". Historically, NH sends more money to...

Transparency is a word we hear a lot and mostly ignore. Let's be transparent here and state our position. In my case, I own a rental residence and I own a rental boat slip. It's hard to raise the...
