Look at it this way. There is not enough marine patrol boats on Winie to enforce it.

We just fought this battle in NJ last year. We ended up getting some new no-wake zones but adverted the speed limit.

You DO NOT want to get into a discussion where you defend your NEED to go faster than 45mph. That will lead to a compromise at a speed everyone can live with, like 60mph.

You need to get out facts and figueres that show that speed has nothing to do with accidents. Point out the major cause of accidents, such as canoes and have then focus on them. Also offer the suggestion that everyone take a safe boating course. Don't focus on one group of people when everyone needs to learn the rules of the road.

Also, find out what bugs the people. Is it the noise? You may need to get some mufflers. If they don't take away your speed, then you'll need to give them something in return.

Listen to Troutly. Go in being a loud obnoxious person is exactly what they expect you to act like. Find some powerboating lawyes and Doctors to bring with you. Show the family side of your boating life.

Be smart, and don't get pissed. Being mad won't help your cause.

Good Luck!!!!!

Its not the mazzholes that are responsible.We come to NH to be free!This has been going on long before the Littlefield incident.Also,you should blame some of your local residents that drink and drive.The boating population increases every year and boats are getting faster.I think its a combination of Volvo type do-gooders with enviromentalists and safety groups all acting together,and I bet you the majority of them are from your own state.

Also bring up, that if they do get a speedlimit, will the police have the manpower and proper equipment to enforce it.

These are burocrates. You need to be on thier level.
