Welcome

Welcome to the Forum.
Not much crime around here, but the PD will tell you how many calls they get to a neighborhood. As a Gilford resident, you can use Gilford Beach and Glendale docks/launch...

Quick or eartly?

I think of "quick" as different from "early". I think "early", but the second week of March as we had not too long ago may be a stretch. In yesterday's mail I received an entry form from a realtor...

Lyons Den & Dorothy's

As a teen, I worked at Dorothy's. She told me that originally, it was Peterson's General Store. I don't know if she was the one that turned it into a restaurant. I appreciate that Lyons Den does a...

"Welcome" signs

I believe the "Latchkey" signs were "Welcome to Meredith" type, so there were multiples, one on Rt 3 near the Meredith/Laconia line, just past Tamarack, one as you come down the hill to the docks...

Bequest

So, we sacrifice a little. This isn't a 5-7 year program like buying a primary residence and moving a lot. This is for children and grandchildren. To be a fly on the wall, check out the "Childhood...

Living on the boat

My family had a 1950 Chris Craft Cruiser that we lived on, mostly weekends, home ported at Welch Island, but when it was too windy we hooked onto a mooring at Mark Island. In those days you could...

Bank vs own?

If my money were in the bank, I would have to pay somebody to sit on their dock to watch the sunset. Most resorts that have sunsets like you post, Dan, are very expensive, plus expense to get there....

No need for PM. It was $125/foot. They did a great job and it's obvious they are proud of their work, so no need to be secretive. As noted above, this included pick up and delivery (300 yards?)...

A few days after this post I called Diamond Shine. They came out and looked at both my boats, and quoted. The "Viking" is a 1994 Sea Ray Overnighter. In reasonable condition for its age and I'm...

check my math

1.1 acres? 405 frontage means about 100 feet deep. The first 50 feet of frontage is un-buildable. Then maybe 10-12 feet on the front for a deck or porch. There must be a setback from the back lot...

Having started boating way before there were bow-riders, it would never occur to me to have somebody in the bow. There's much better stability for crew in the back, at least in my boats where you can...

Risk?

The original post was surprise at confiscating a pen knife. I understand that simple "weapons" can be used to create havoc with a bus or airplane. Not so much a boat show. Others have their own...
