Chuck,

I have heard very little positive things for Lake George these days. While that Lake is going down hill, Sacandaga has been getting better and better. Noise limits have not been an issue and old in the narrow upper channel by the Dam is there a speed limit. There have been some cats running excess of 100 and the officers just watch for prudence and respect. And the sandy Islands provide more than enough eye candy.

Chuck, No I'm staying in the boating scene. I did sell the HTM and bought a cruiser. It is acouple years old, but it is paid for. Had another baby so I needed more room. Will take a year or two to get back up there. Then get back into the speed and still keep the cruiser for the family. Look forward to seeing you this fall.

Chucky,
Fix the exhaust right.... it's only a few dcb's. Don't give Dunn the satisfaction of keeping you off the lake. Every dog has his day and his clock is ticking.

Chuck,

I agree. Don't give the pecker head the satisfaction. I realize the exhaust tips or inserts are a pain but like Hot Boat said there are several that will get you decibel reduction you need and many offer no loss in power. See you Saturday.

Thats why we stay on the Hudson. There's several different county sheriff's, state police, state park police, and encon. but they rarely pull over our type of boats. They have pretty much seen it all and heard it all. There's a guy with a DCB lime green 26 cat that does 100+ mph flybys (loud as hell) they just sit back and enjoy. They are usually pulling over the people with the kids riding on the bow, or with a ton of people in the boat, and mostly jetskis. It has nice sandy islands also. The island we hang on is right across (1/4 mile) from a restaurant/bar that has live bands on Sat. so you get entertainment too. We've been swimming in the river for at least 15 years and we aren't glowing yet.

Jason,
I agree......... I just visited because Chuck told me he put a post on about Dunn and I wanted to check it out. That prick ticketed me for silent choice rolling out of log bay a few years back. He's got a "huge" chip on his shoulder and harassing the wrong people and driving a lot of revenue off the lake. Anyway, I've been too busy for boating this summer. Finally, got the track rental squared away and right now getting all my ducks in a row for a total renovate when they leave end of August. So I've been very busy. As soon as I get this one up and running I should have some more time on my hands. I told you so about the rental........... fire me an e-mail at [email protected] and I'll send you the navy rental contact info.

I have found in 40+ years of boating that you INVITE them aboard, give them the red carpet, and every possible consideration (offer them a soda, etc.), show them the engine compartment etc., and generally try to make their shi**y job a little better that day.
I have made "suggestions" of how to maybe better approach the locals, and have generally afterwards been left alone. They are doing a job, and although there are some that are more socially inept than others, most will appreciate a break.
