cigracer, im not sure if this is you or not,

I was alternating between the dig camera and binoculars and the light bulb went off, hey, hold the camera up to the binoculars and, well, believe it or not, it worked. I have some video also this way which is good because my dig camera does not zoom while in video mode. The camcorder is much better for these distances but it is hell transferring the data to the computer.

Not trying to sound like a complainer, but, if any of you have read my posts on the noise restrictions that are moving across the country you will know that I have been trying to get offshore boaters united to fight the restrictions with little success! Why is it that no one is complaining that there is a speed restriction for a poker run?

I know that I am not the only one that realizes that these are small, well planned steps to eliminate our boats on the water ways of America!

I am concerned for the future of our sport and for me it is only recreational time, what about you guys who make a living from these boats? If you are working on something, why no publicity?

Someone needs to let me know if maybe my thinking is along the same lines as trying to convince you there are little green men .

Please guys, let me know if I am nuts so I can get help

If I'm not off my rocker, could everyone PLEASE contact their local officials and let them know that there is a performance boating community and we want our voice heard!!!

Because complaining about a speed limit that sounds like it was not really enforced would only piss off the Water Patrol who issues the permit for the event. Thus, no events of this sort in the future.

QFS - I think all of us are concerned about noise restrictions but they are a reality. Performance boaters at LOA have fought this (and speed limit) legislation for years. As with most lobbying efforts, we achieved a compromise that we can live with and still enjoy boating. Keep in mind that there are some first class mufflers available today that really don't hurt performance.

Exactly. I've heard them say, "If you can afford that loud boat, then you can afford to muffle it."

It sucks, but it is a reality.
