Whatever happen to WinnFIBS? They may be dormant but my state representative received a phone call from someone who claim he is WinnFIBS. The person was canvassing the possibility to limit the size of boats and motors under the technicality that Lake Winnipesaukee is a reservoir. All surrounding towns get their water from the lake. Due to the tourist based economy my representative don't think it is feasible to legislate.

Can we put a limit on fun too? Should make a phone call to the fun police. What a nonsense idea to limit those boats regardless whether you are for or against them. What happened to live free or die?

I've changed my opening tab to "Lake Issues": those threads appearing on the screen would be the threads to avoid where controversy is an issue.

"New Posts" would be your next stop.

This video is extremely poor quality, so it is incredibly hard to say anything concrete....

I can certainly conjecture, as you have done, but it is simply conjecture without any proof... hence I will not conjecture.... the fact of this video, is that the boat was in turbulent water, and the passengers and boat paid the price.
​​•​ ​One of Tres Martin's [performance-boat school] instructions is,

"Never let your boat land on its side."
(A very strange admonition to most of Lake Winnipesaukee's family boaters).


​​•​ ​With this thread "renewed", an oversight needs to be addressed:

While the anchor did fly out of the hatch, it didn't disappear into the mist, as I wrote.

For several frames, the anchor can be seen being towed behind—hydroplaning—in the boat's wake.
