Too many lines

Too many lines here, Dave, so I held back. Everybody will have to make up their own (punch) line about somebody they dated who didn't twist and had no memory. (LMAO-ROF)

Where?

I'm sure it's a nice place. Why do people post such starting threads and not tell me where this place is? It's like asking for a painter and we don't know if you're in Tuftonboro or Lakeport. It...

Quality?

Rope isn't just rope. If you have a 15' aluminum row boat, Walmart lines may be OK. If you spent Tens of thousands on a new bow rider, you likely want better grade (higher test strength) lines and...

Cheapest?

I don't always go for the cheapest, as I like convenience too. Both Irwin Marine in Lakeport and Parafunalia in Gilford get my business. I check online at West Marine, but have never bought...

Interesting that you joined the Forum (Jan 2003) at the same time Rep Dave Lawton Introduced HB753 to establish Gen. John Stark Day. It was his last bill before he left the House. The Motto, "Live...

1. This has nothing to do with OP topic

Early

In the past, I loved to open early, get stuff done and enjoy May instead of it being a working month. Now, I enjoy May anyhow because Island Construction does the heavy lifting/cleaning. Than you,...

Second opinion

I agree with MAXUM (#4). We established a Realty Trust in 1986. The original donors were the trustees, but 5 children and grandchildren were the shareholders. My great niece is now one of the...

Glad you're better. While you were off line, not much happened. Ice out in the next 48 hours, so you're good to go.

There's sort of an assumption about freezing because it was discovered in the spring. Most likely, yes.

Enforceable?

Tough to enforce as a "primary stop" since nobody can see the lanyard. If you get stopped for some other reason, stand up to get your wallet/registration, it may be obvious, but not if you have it...

Chopper?

Some years ago, my son and I took a helicopter ride at a Hi-Hopes Festival. I think it held five passengers plus pilot. They were based in Concord, NH.

There used to be a seaplane operator in Pauggs Bay. Don't know what Covid did to that operation, but it would be fun to have him pick you up at Acadia. There's probably somebody at Moultonborough...

Vhf?

BoatUS suggest that after a PFD your best piece of safety gear is your VHF. Fishing on the lake, I think most boats monitor and converse on Ch 11 (?), so it's not just a safety item. Doubly...
