That paper is actually very good and conservative.

That sap is another "since I can't get one no one should have bigger than what i can afford" syndrome... they' re all over. The guy might be an advertiser to the paper or they are catering to the masses again to make people feel good.

Show me one major boating area that is not less crowded during the week than it is on the weekend. The sail boaters on winnipesaukee.com must be having a field day with this by now.

So, right up front, no offense intended toward any cruiser owners on the board, but...

That's TOTAL BS!!! It's not the "big, fast boats" that are the problem, it's the A-HOLES that buy the big cruisers and drive around at 10-20 mph that are the problem!! Do we need to have a bunch of "floating cottages" on the lake, cruising around at "the biggest wake I can possibly leave behind" speed, thus - by the time it gets to you, your boat or god-forbid your boat at your dock, hang on!! I sit and watch Cigs, Fountains, Formulas, etc go by every weekend, they are courteous and leave the smallest of wakes behind. Then along comes "you scratched my anchor" boat owner, plowing through with no regard for anyone smaller then he is, and sending everyone off his wake skyward!! So, I think that we need to contact Roger Amsden - the yahoo at the Union Leader that wrote the article and tell them they need to do a bit more research!! I know we are all sick of the "performance boaters" getting the bad rap, and in this case, I don't know how they can say a 41 Regal cruiser - HELLLOOO!?!?! is fine but a "fast boat" is not... Pisses me off to no end...!!!

Most problems on the lake are caused by runabouts that run 55+. They dont acknowledge right of way and never look before they turn. It drives me nuts.

In most cases, the performance boaters here on winni have more knowledge than anyone else on the lake.

BI~

In all seriousness, I am going to send a note to the joker that wrote that article and "call him" on it. I just don't see how he can not only offer that info, but use an owner of a 41 CRUISER to substantiate it!?!?! Is he for real!?!? Better yet, the guy that owns the 41' Regal is saying - and I quote, (Paul and Shelley Polewarczyk of Sterling, Mass., get ready to head out onto Lake Winnipesaukee in their 41-foot cruiser). He said "he has noticed a lot of faster and bigger boats in the eight years hes been on the lake." How about this PAAAAAUL... have you noticed all the additional floating CONDOS on the lake!? I suppose you think they are ok, but those guys in the "go fast" boats are reckless and an endangerment to all that is good on that lake!? Once again, let's pick on the performance boats... what a crock! (Good thing I don't have a blood pressure test scheduled for today!)

CowIsl ~

Do you by any chance have a place on the island? We have friends out there in a couple of different spots, (one on the "town" side and one on the Idlewilde side) and we are out there all the time, great place!
