Seems to be a national trend, we all have spent thousands of money to quiet our boats, Nortech stepped up the plate and now offers a stealth exhaust system, we do all that and now there is a size limit, whats next no boats allowed with a paint job, Terry, let us know if the OSO powers can help you guys,

James, I think you may have taken 1baggers comment the wrong way. Marilyn D. is still very much a friend of the offshore community.
I took his comment to mean that she is probably working at helping to solve the problem.

Hell, I'll even relocate NOR-TECH ...cheaper taxes, excellent benifits, endless possibilities.

Also ban any sailboat over that length from anchoring anywhere.

Marilyn is a great supporter of offshore. She does some work for Cigarette and I think she will do all she can to keep the Boaters and neighbours getting along. She will only try and help the sport .

Just got home from the "Symphony" and popped on here...

Sorry, I didn't understand the comment. Glad to hear that Marilyn is still "one of us"!!!

Y'all can bet that I'll throw the full force of my persuasive talents toward correcting the misguided thinking of this unfortunately misinformed public servant...I may be able to put some words together...

Terry, call me when you're ready.

Let the power of OSO be put in place and start e-mailing this Thomas Hair. I pay the same in taxes as the small boats. If anything they should make the parking better for the longer trailers when they are remodeling. As it is now you park half way on the grass or hang out into the street.
The ramp at Veternans bridge is better but it is shallow going out to the river.

PS I still need a place to park my 40' trailer for three months. Any suggestions?
