I appreciate the offer, but I am going do the Alton Bay Winterfest this weekend. Nice talking to you and enjoy your weekend.

I will never bring my boat back to Lake Winni again.

Sorry OCD and the like, but it takes all the fun out of boating to keep looking over your shoulder for the stupid MP for an infraction they might or might not decide to hand you.

Not to mention the weekend warrior boat rental experts.

Nice marina a Brewer yard close to the canal so you can get to the couth side of the cape in a short ride then you have buzzards bay the Elizabeth islands, Newport and block island or head to Nantucket sound and you have Hyannis, Falmouth, Marthas Vinyard, and Nantucket. Let me know if I can help in anyway. I am in the real estste business and do not touch residental sales, but have a few contacts on that side of the business.

Lots of good boating in the area and live aboards are doable if you know how. I have a customer that I will be going to see this afternoon that is on a live aboard.
Taxes in my area now are some of the highest....And just keep going.....

If you dont mind me asking whats his liveaboard....Make/Size?

Beautiful scenery, no sales tax, friendly people and excellent service 7 days a week if your boat needs something. In Boston, you can't even get your boat hauled out on a weekend unless you know someone.
I dont have to worry about speed or noise anymore.

On the flipside I have alot of other benefits that makes up for the speed and noise, at least for now.

I have never been a lake boater but.....Who knows anymore.I never though I would be thinking of moving north I always wanted to go south....

Nobody was more of an ocean boater than me. I used to laugh at the people who boated on a lake. But, after going to visit a friend of mine and going for a ride in his Topgun on the lake, I changed my mind. Once and awhile, I miss the ocean, but if it really gets me, I can always trailer the boat 115 miles and drop it in the ocean. Oh, and one more thing, being in freshwater keeps the boat much nicer. There are 15 year old boats in the boathouse that look like new!
