That was in another thread. Here it is again if you lost it, but be patient, it has been so busy that you might have to wait until an off-hour to get in:
http://www.ipetitions.com/campaigns/HB162
Keep trying.

I notice that OSO has over a thousand members, so why is this argument only coming from three or four? Might it be that the rest all recognize that you guys are not really helping them by taking such an extreme position? By holding to the rediculous notion that driving at any speed on this crowded lake is safe? Might the others be mature and intelligent enough to recognize that it is in the best long-term interests of your hobby that you give in to some reasonable limits?
I like to shoot, but I would not expect to get much mileage from an argument that it is ok to fire a gun down a crowded street. I think NRA would dis-own me if I tried to make that argument in their name. They accept that to keep the sport alive, reasonable compromises must be accepted.

Mike, how was the grammar?

There are like 20,000+ members here and most wont waste there time with a slug like you ..
If you are somehow comparing a fast boat to firing a gun down the street ..your even more of a spin doctor than I would have thought ..keep trying

Please explain why 45mph is "reasonable" and why 65 or 85 or 105 is not. And why 100% of the lake, 100% of the time should be speed limited.

ROTHLMFAO, Frank, you're too funny.

By the way, I traded in my Baja for a cruiser which should be in next week. Funny thing is that even with a 45 tail wind, I still don't think it will hit your proposed speed limit. Guess that means I'm not a "Go Fast"

So, even though I no longer have a dog in the fight, I still oppose HB162, and will do all I can to see that it never gets out of committe. At the risk of being repetitive, it is one sided legislation and does very little, if anything to deal with the issues facing the lake.

These were my thoughts exactly! I know we get smashed for taxes on our island camp. Waterfront tax, view tax, regular property tax Whats next? Speed limits will only mean the need for more Lake patrol, and more equipment and faster boats for the lake patrol to enforce the speed limit with. And none of these come free of charge!

And as for Fasterthanthou. What a sleazy way to try and get support for your side of the bill. And I guess you'll be able to give up your name if it ever does pass cause everyone will be stuck at 45 anyways. YOU SUCK! And good luck in finding a new use for your boat as a mooring weight.

That's the whole idea, I'm tired of my boat being a mooring weight now because it is only 23 feet long and too small to compete out there. I want to start using it again...hence HB162.
What's your real name?
