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. ...

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...

You should at least teach her how to use the VHF to call for help if something happens to you. And know enough navigation to tell others where you are.
