I wasn’t really meaning over near Dollar. Should have said in the area nearer Camp Nokomis — North of Bear but more in the middle of the island. If you draw a line between Dollar Island and the...

A few other thoughts.

1). Parking at Sheps (Goodhue Meredith). The public parking fills up early during the peak season…. I came in last Thursday PM and there wasn’t an open spot anywhere. Not sure what advice Sheps...

Last I checked….

The very definition of a forum is to debate ideas. You don’t have to agree with them. You don’t even have to engage in the discussion if you don’t want to. I often strongly disagree with some of...

Fireworks

First of all, it was off Mark Island, not Mink :)

And there were maybe 20 boats in the general area that watched it. Two passing boats even asked me what was up and then hung around. So even...

Reworking of the docks/parking area at Shep Brown’s

Anyone attend the Select Board meeting on 6/21 when this was discussed?

My quick observations:

1) spending $520,000 (nearly 1/3 of the total cost) to add permanent bathroom facilities seems...

Ice Fishermen

Hate to say it but some ice fisherman are known to dump their empties down a hole. That’s why they’re so concentrated in one location…. Just my 2cents. Doesn’t damn all ice fisherman. I am one...

LLoyds

Lloyd’s is where we ended up a few years ago when our prior insurer (where we were bundling all our business), dropped us on the island homeowners. Needless to say, we moved all or other business….

Meredith and short term rentals

Meredith has formed a sub-committee of the Planning Board to research this issue and to make recommendations. Not clear where it stands, but they do have a survey available online if Meredith...

Not a problem

Your starter will draw only what it needs. Those extra cranking amps won’t be force fed into your electronics, the new battery simply has more capacity to deliver more amps if demanded.

It would make me very nervous to have a power cord in the water around where people swim, etc. The risk of having an electric shock hazard is not zero. Just my 2cents.

Black plastic pipe diameter

I use 1-1/4 inch (O.D.), which is typical, I believe. So 1” connectors.

The foot valve would certainly be a first thing to check, especially if you don’t hold the prime if you turn the pump...

The camp is open!

Fired up the water system today. Only challenge was the ice snapped off a ball valve I have down at the water that I use to drain the black pipe back to sea level in the fall. My son and I had...

Weather and opening

By mid-April you’re fine. Even if it drops below freezing briefly overnight, it would take a sustained cold snap to put pipes at risk. If you are at all worried, leave a few taps dribbling when...

Still some weeks to go, but all we need is warm, wind and wet to accelerate us into ice-out!

And btw, full lake can be gauged by the side boards on the dock — when full, the water touches the...

Water Levels

Too soon to panic, but looking at my permanent dock and then the Bizer water level chart, it’s clear that we’ve got a very long way to go to get to full lake. Yes, this is the time of year when the...

Maybe not

Gas for the boat is pretty short money compared to the cost of boat ownership on the lake overall (slip, boat maintenance, boat cost). I suspect boating traffic is relatively insensitive to the...
