Well, his is newer, and has the added weight of the hi top model and a/c unit, but mine has the added weight of speakers, amp , subwoofer and wine bar...might be a toss up!

Had to run down to Dover yesterday for my daughter's baby shower and was expecting a horrific ride back out here...wasn't bad at all, and NO boat traffic!

Default Rain vs wind

Looks like more rain than wind. Gotta love the enclosed cabin. Which island are we looking at in the picture? Sometimes the hardest part of the trip is on/off the dock and tying up in the rain. Thanks for posting.

Yeah, those would be nice, but I realize that you can't have everything. Actually, to operate the manual wipers, you kinda have to to a " seated sit up" to reach the levers, so for me, whenever it rains, I get a great core workout!

I can imagine the satisfaction of casting off, ducking into the cabin, and slamming the door closed, out of the wind and rain. Then on the other end not heading into the island dock all that quickly since you know you have to get out once you arrive.

I didn't think it was you, but it looked like a C-Dory coming through. Of course, I was trying to keep the dog from the ducks.

That stayed on the boat. He'll probably get the same looks of disbelief telling his classmates about his boating into school that i get when i mention to my customers that I have to boat in to work!

People on the lake are quick to report on things they see. Many times news items are on Winnipesaukee.com before the local media has the story.

In years past I have noticed that often WMUR and the Laconia Sun seem to echo stories first seen here. I think they keep a pretty close watch on many sources and have scanners on police and fire frequencies looking for stories they can report on.

I can’t see any kid who gets to spend summers on a Winnipesaukee island with his grandparents turning bad at any age. He sees every day how good honest hard work pays off.

he had a pretty good summer...graduated to an adult sized kayak, getting a handle on the swimming thing, did some solo tubing, and took a crack at the neighbor's diving board with some success! :-)

The view from the C-Nile coming home last night was a dark one. The navigation lights from Glendale out to Mark have already been removed. I don't remember them ever disappearing this early...was thinking the end of this month was the time.
