You ever make it back up this way, let one of the lg guys know. I can assure you someone will give you tips on where to go.

I can Honestly say I will never go back to That Lake. It may be a pretty lake but there are alot of great watering holes where the people are great. Keep in mind I told you a small portion of the story. It was alot worse than I have time to tell. When you say LG guys not sure who you are talking about but I called every single Marina / Yacht club listed on the lake and got know where. The answer was always the same. We can't help you. Good luck with the future. Paddle boat sales have to going up at the lake.

Pretty strong words from a guy whos been here once, going against the people who live here or have been coming for 30 years and love it. Maybe, If none of us have issues like you did, and some have bigger/faster boats...maybe it could be you? But who knows..

Very Strong words you bet. You are from Lake George correct! You are Performance Marine correct!. Ok you set the record straight. Where do people launch 35'-45' foot boats on the east side of the lake. With Parking for Trucks&Trailers. Oh don't forget to include the name and Location of the Marina/Resort with Transient slip availability. Power would be nice. Maybe Bathrooms and showers not alot to ask for for a Lake that has 1.5 Mil. so called lots with a view.

You are Performance Marine. You must have a Launch and Transient slips yes???

No drinking

No ramps
Speed limit of 45 a little past plaining speed.
Sounds like a fun place to go NOT
What a shame

I agree 100% with the lack of slips. The only way I ever got one was to stay where they had one. If you stay somewhere with out docks, you are pretty much screwed. The main problem with LG is the few people with Big $$$$$$ The majority doesn't rule there. The minutes for the LGPC are a joke. Even when you own million dollar land on the lake, see what its like to get permission to build a dock or change something.

Gee,
I live on Rockhurst point and there are 3 Marinas near me that can launch your boat......
Castaways
Fischers
Mooring Post

I have launched my 36OL in all of these at one time or another.
Hope that helps. As far as transient docks, thats another story but most waterfront Hotels have docking accomadations.
Like I said at the beginning of this thread, lots of laws but still the best lake I have ever been to. Thats why I bought a house there.
And yes, property is still going for 1 million + for a tear down.

He said lots not condos, and $500K on LG is cheap. Only condos that are sitting are Sagamore. Houses aren't. Not to mention that the houses selling are for way more than $500K. more like 2-3 million.

Tic riden? Yea, we have tics. Its the Adirondack Park. Ya know, woods wild animals and no traffic. no smog, and taxes on a 3 million dollar house equal what you pay for a $200K house.

All that exhaust from the traffic sitting on the LIE kills anything.
