And I'm the one that 's hiding behind a false identity? I don't feel hidden. You know who I am. Please post your name address and phone number. We'll send you a Winnfabs application and won't tell any of the others if you sign up. We've printed special bumper stickers for all the performance boaters that have joined but don't want anyone else to know. They depict a guy in a Fountain driving at a safe speed, but he's wearing shades so nobody will recognize him. LOL

Strange, but I've been talking to LRSPS and they say they are not opposed to HB162 at all
Funny, but that's not the feedback I've been getting. PM on that if you'd like.

You still haven't answered what your commitments to safe boating are other than HB162. Which, obviously I feel, does little, if anything, to further the cause.

For your benefit, here isthe offical position, "Lakes Region Sail and Power Squadron, as a squadron of the United States Power Squadrons, is prevented by its charter from endorsing any legislation".

Let's focus on education, operation, alcohol use, and enforcing existing laws, which govern excessive speed. Let's see what can be done to beef up MP presence. I'm in favor of expanding NWZs like the one at the Weirs. BTW, we are working on a petition to expand that NWZ.

While I don't disagree there are some people operating HP boats on the lake in a less than safe mannor, there are an equal if not larger percentage of "family" boaters doing the same. HB162 does nothing to address any of this.

IMHO, your message is one-sided, and from what I've seen does nothing to alleviate the problems you speak of.

I am committed to fighting for reasonable speed limits on the lake, so those who own "lake-size" boats will also be safe.

Please ask those LRSPS officials you mention to weigh in. Are they officers or just go-fasters who signed up as members so they could pretend to speak for the whole group? Please provide more specifics.

HB162 applies equally to those family boaters and the HP boaters you mention. There is no language in the bill that discriminates against or exempts any particular type of boat. Where did you hear that there was? Did Director Barrett tell you that?

Come on, be serious, this legislation, is aimed at performance boats. Even Merril Fay who sponsored it with Rep Pilliod initially, was honest enough to admit it. Trust me, I'm well informed on the subject. And you still say nothing about education, only the speed limit. Be honest and stop parading behind the banner of safe boating.

What about keeping us safe from the irresponsible "lake-size" boaters who are out there (sometimes in vast numbers)?
