Bob,

Couldn't have said it better myself.. I'm getting tired of people who don't live here telling us that they know what's best for us. Leave us alone, we can manage.

See you in a few weeks I'm sure.

Here on OSO I'm FormulaOutlaw. My name is Russ. I live in Nokomis, FL.

I don't like self centered arrogant jerks who subscribe to the "I don't like it so you can't do it" philosphy or believe they have the right to "control" what they may not agree with. I really didn't like the way he tried to pull that end around to his petition so I reported it as a bad post and asked that it be deleted. If the chickchit bastar) can't at least be honest about his own site he shouldn't be allowed to lie about it.

Notice however "fastercrapper" that at least on THIS Forum, you can speak your nonsense. That's a hell of a lot more than I was allowed to do on Don's Forum.

We have almost 26,000 members at this point and 99% are responsible boaters. We promote education and safety. We don't hide behind some BS agenda like your ilk does. You are not fooling anyone here so stop wasting our time, and yours, though I don't give a rat's ass about you or your time, or your kind of people.

You want a speed limit for one reason and one reason only, to try to get the offshore boats off the lake. At least have the sack to speak the truth.

I have lots of customers up at the lake(most in 20-26 ft boats) that have good Views in both directions 90 percent of them dont want a speed limit but think there should be something done to control The (lack of knowledge factor) speed in itself is not the issue People not knowing good boating edicat is! I cant count how many times on the lake when I am the stand on boat that I am cut off by someone in a smaller craft only to be flipped off because that person thinks they had the rite of way .. again a Knowlege thing. The people with Blow Boats and small boats think there are issues now slow the whole thing down to waterplow speed and watch how big the chop on the lake and haystacks will be . Most larger offshore boats and cruisers will still manage but Docks and boats tied to them as well as boats smaller than 25 ft will get the Szit Beat out of them ! people will stop coming to the lake.. and taxes will rise.. We have a family property on the lake and have for 50+ years. my uncle and Dad remember when the first Chris Craft /Garwood Type boats hit the lake and no one wanted to hear the Noise from those beastly machines on the Lake.. Now we all admire them!! I'm just sick about something I have enjoyed my Whole life and Followed as a Career as a result as my love for the Sport is Being messed with By people who have no Business Messing with it!

Well said Bob ..My feelings exactly. IF there is aproblem out there its lack of knowledge. Ive had plenty of ROW altercations because someone doesnt know the rules. Some think they are on the highway and will try and go around you to get on your right side etc.. "Know before you go"
But in my 38 years on the lake I honestly cant recall one time where speed was an issue and I said to myself gee that boat is going to fast for one reason or another.
And the reasons the proponenets of HB 162 are spewing are completely trumped up or overblown , just to push there agenda. That part of it is sickening

I just wrote a "letter to the Editor" to that newspaper. Bet it doesn't get printed although it was very courteous and polite.

All one can do is try....

lot of quotes from week-end "residents". last time I checked the decision is being made by representatives of NH, representing NH residents, not week end visitors that vote in other states. typical BS from the Union Leader, find what serves your purpose and print it.

Quote:
“A speed limit would only hurt the guys who are racing around the lake. I won’t go out on the lake at night because it’s too dangerous. And the guys who are racing around are drinking,” says Mory, adding that he hopes a speed limit would “get rid of the boats that cause most of the grief.”
This from
Quote:
Island residents like Ron Mory of Marlboro, Mass., who spends three days every weekend from May to October at his Welch Island camp, is all in favor of it, maintaining that large, high speed boats have created a “fear factor” on the lake that ruins the boating experience for practically everyone.

heres my quote - "people from Marlboro MA are coming to NH to sexually abuse children" There is as much fact in both statements.
