Island vs Mainland?

I'm always happy to have somebody tie up to my dock, introduce themselves and talk about having a great day on the lake. We have lots of fishermen, etc. Why is this a problem for people? On the...

Noise

It wasn't speed, safety or anything else that killed GFBL. It was noise. The same will happen with wakeboats although it will be blamed on dock damage and erosion or similar.

Change the by-laws

Get a fistful of proxies before the next association meeting. Propose that "Stupid rules require a 2/3 majority to pass. A "stupid' rule is determined by a simple majority, with a secret ballot." ...

Legislative calendar

The Commission report is due in June 2020. IF somebody files related legislation, that would be in the fall 2020. The report could conclude that our present laws are adequate. The bill would have...

X Cruise?

Not many replies so far. Not surprising as this isn't a lakes region topic. Nevertheless, nobody yet has said "Take this cruise"? Perhaps a river cruise is a better choice? We're looking at a...

Watch the video

As a prerequisite, you should watch the video that explains all this. Sheesh!

they're everywhere

Sounds like everybody has kit. There's probably one in my tool kit, buried. Ask the guy in the boat slip next to you. Bet he has one.

Greek Islands

We did a Greek Island Tour a few years ago with "Classic Journeys". Six in our group although they would have gone to 10. At 12-14, they would have considered splitting the group.

We spent three...

Jet Ski !!

I can go out on my JET SKI with nobody watching. Both machines have a shut off if I fall. In fact, the one that SP brought forward will circle back to the operator. A traditional PWC will not do...

Pwc

The key here is that this is a PWC, not a boat pulling a skier. We have no need for an observer on a PWC although everything else is similar to the personal ski machine.
BTW, there are certain...

Ingredients + skill

Scratch may come in a 30 lb bag and "Our special gravy" may come in a 5 gallon drum. It's what you do after that that makes the difference. An unskilled bartender can screw up Scotch on the rocks. ...

That's what "Home style" cooking means: open the same can that Mom did. Just because it has a brand name doesn't mean it isn't the real thing. Most supermarkets don't sell anything in restaurant...

Pwc

I think they said it in the video. "It's a PWC... no spotter needed" Existing PWC laws/regs should be the governing factor. They seem to have built in some good safety features.

Let's be practical

To me, a lighthouse is just not a serious proposal, for financial reasons if nothing else. However to be financially practical, I suggest the following:
the State of NH can lease rights to a...

How?

I agree with an earlier post that a lighthouse on the Witches is not a clever move. Thinking about it just a little, to put a lighthouse or some structure in the middle would likely require barge...

Urban Compact

I think that section of road is an "Urban Compact" where the state has ceded control to the local political subdivision (town).
While it appears the red (only) light is not a success, a full light...

Light?

Although there really aren't, to my knowledge, many accidents on the Witches, I bet the predominant number occur during the day.

Spoof?

They're serving fruitcake and Kool-Ade for refreshments. The papers will report it as "heavily supported by the attendees" because serious boaters won't show up. Maybe some abutters will show up to...

Glen Campbell

I remember Glen Campbell. Part of the Kingston Trio, then a Beach Boy. Then a summer replacement for the Smothers Brothers. Always a substitute. Didn't he have a summer route in the Poconos?

development density?

Frank Lloyd Wright built his famous "Falling Waters" over a stream. In the 19th century mills, etc were built on the side of a river. Now DES knows better and you can't build next to moving water. ...

Good points, Phantom. I don't know how prevalent this is now, but marinas used to monitor VHF, sometimes on ch 9 instead of ch 16, so it was mostly for their customers. A handheld will usually get...
