This is an incredible tragedy. People lost their lives and I suspect that the Collins Foundation will never rise past this and people in the future will never see these planes fly again. I thought...

We bought a house in Alton for 40k under assessed value. Alton did adjust the assessed value downward, but in the intervening 8 years it's gone up every year. It will be interesting to see what...

Anyone with Boston Whaler experience? Goodhue and Hawkins want 32k for a used/demo 2019 Montauk 17'. It has a trailer and minimal options, but the base MSRP for the bare boat is 32k.

New boat pricing

So if I was to buy a new boat from a local dealer should I be able to get a discount off the list price? Would I do better to wait until a spring boat how? I'm interested in a whaler in the 17 foot...

My trick of the trade is my "o-sh**" rope. It's tied to bow and stearn cleats with 20 feet of slack tucked into the rear seat. If it's rough you get the nose of the boat to the dock, jump off and...

12mph is my magic number. We live on the broads too. It gets really hard to dock in 1+ foot swells if you're single handed on an exposed dock perpendicular to the wind.

I don't think I'd want to be on a kayak in the vicinity of this thing. It's got to be tough for the operator to see someone at water level while skiing with this 50 feet in front of them.

I mostly frequent the Varney Islands as a local tour boat captain and there is constantly someone standing on the swim platform of a wake boat that spends time there just about every day. I also...

Odd that the fire was in the bow. Almost like something stored in a forward locker caught on fire.

I think the issue is that it needs spuds down to "dock" nose in to the dock. This isn't exactly a normal docking situation and it looks like that is what Laconia is objecting to. Yes the owners of...

I feel bad for the boat drivers in that video having to stay sober while their riders drank all that beer. I did see one Dogfish Head Ale in there. Maybe it was a parent.

Of course maintaing steerage is pretty open to interpretation too. You can go very slow if you adjust every 10 seconds. These are all terms better suited to large craft in places of tides and...

My jet ski will make headway with no throttle at all. At about 1 mph. If they make Wolfeboro bay NWZ it would take me an hour to get out of the bay:(

They of course have to stay 150 away, but anyone trolling still has to abide by the right of way rules.

I never heard anything about Wolfeboro. I'm sure Jo Green's wouldn't like it much. It would be a terrible match anyway. Wolfeboro isn't exactly a Dive kinda place. The Weir's is a good home for...

I'd start in wolfeboro on a weekday morning on a day with no wind. The yacht club has pontoon boats for rent at a very reasonable rate. Docking is easy there (not so at goodhue and Hawkins) and you...

Hmmm, the guy wrote limited to not over 35 feet or 80 hp on mine. Looks like more Dept of safety vague wording. I assume that means I drive a boat over 35 feet if it doesn't have more than 80 hp,...

Well there is the view and the music thumping until 11PM every night (but then it was probably worse in the hayday of Winni Gardens.

I can't believe that it's legal to dock nose in like that. The...

How does the Dive stay put on a windy or wavy day? I wouldn't exactly call that docked. Is it sitting there with it's spuds down?
