We were at the Boston Boat show. My wife has been wanting one of the new Chris Crafts for some time as well as a member of the board that will go un named unless he wants to say so himself. Well after talk to Trexler's Marine for a few min. The other member remembered that Trexler's supported HB162. So he asked them how fast the Chris Craft went. He said a little over 55. At that point the member got on the guy good about them supporting the bill. The guy that we were talkign to said that he was just nutral in the whole thing so we told him that as long as they were going to support a bill like that there was no way they were getting our business.

Congratulations Guys!

The opposition turned out the troops Friday and made some good points.

From the questions the Senators asked it seemed to me they were looking for a compromise. I bet most of them don't like going against public opinion on a safety issue, but they think HB162 goes to far.

I'll bet the speeds go up and it goes back to Winni only, maybe a weekend only limit. Any bets for 60/30 on summer weekends? Or an exception for the broads?

HB162 you have been very respectful on this site and I hope that the other hear threat you as such.

I will say this. I am not at all apposed to a night time speed limit. I am not apposed to a limit in certain areas say out in front of wears. I am not there on holiday weekends so I can not speak for if holidays make any sence or not. I do not think that they do as long as they enforce the 150 foot rule sounds like you could not get on plane durring those weekends anyhow according to your camp. I do not think that a night time limit would help much as I think that the MP's would be spending most of their time at night in the congested areas looking for OUI's not in the broads looking for a speeder that MAY come along. Frankly that is the way that I would prefer it. I am far more concerned about a OUI then a speeder. What I do think that a night time limit would do is to keep the honest guys honest thus keeping the night just a little safer.

Jon

HB162 - your losing and from the looks of winni.com suddenly theres a lot of talk about a compromise - save it.
Its funny how when a decision appears that it will it be made based on facts and not rhetoric suddenly theres a willingness to compromise. How sweet. Its not over but appears heading in our favor.

The next time your at the bingo parlor and it appears your losing ask for a compromise - "can't we all win?" Loser.

I love the excuse that those in favor didn't show up because they have real jobs - thats a hoot!
