Arrow Long Lake & Loud Boats

Check out this link and go to noise impact videos. Your boat might be videotaped on this website! The problem on Long Lake are people with too much free time to videotape boaters and post inaccurate statements.http://www.lrsla.org

Thanks for the info Scarabdude, I see you have been captured on film twice and they have got film of me also.

The future of performance boats on our lake is looking pretty grim... I just heard that the head of the so called "safe lakes assn" just donated $500,000 to Inland Fisheries & Waterways (game wardens)

This really sucks. Brian, don't you feel like you are on constant surveilance from this guy? I'm not sure what to do.

Find out who is doing the video and follow them around as they are driving and tape them. You will be amazed at the violations that most people commit daily. Speeding, improper or no use of signals and failure to come to a complete stop are just a few. Save this for when it is really needed.

What a f*ckin d!ck!! Why can't people just let other people enjoy themselves. Not everyone wants to sit on the shoreline in their burkanstocks, cut off jeans and flanel while eating beats and carressing a tree, contemplating how to improve the eco system!

There are plenty of lakes in the country that there are not ANY boats on let alone high performance boats. Go find one of these and let people enjoy themselves.

Quote from his web site:

LRSLA is actively working in support of Quiet Lakes. Noise is not just annoying. Noise is proven to cause High levels of stress, increase in blood pressure, Loss of Sleep among many other Health issues. The clips below recordings recording of some of hundreds of incidents that occur on Long Lake and Brandy Pond on any given weekend. LRSLA dedicates time to documenting this impact in the hope that some day Quiet will return to the surface water experience in the Lake Region.

What a dick! This is insane. I'm glad I don't have a place on this lake. Someone needs to video this joker driving like was stated above. Surely he wouldn't be hard to find.

Assh*les like this should know that not being able to drive your beautifully loud power boat on your lake can cause high levels of stress and loss of sleep. How would you feel if you spend 6 figures on a boat and were being persecuted by this jerk.

Best of luck to you guys. I feel for you.
