NH sailing?

Post  WHL on Fri Jul 19, 2013 7:29 pm

Was that you I saw this morning, NH? We have guests and they went waterskiing. I thought it was you so I waved. If not, I just was being friendly to someone else. Very Happy

Yup...that was me. I first heard two toots, thought it was you...and wondered why I didn't recognize the boat.

Very strange winds in that particular area, but the winds in general were all over the map. 'Just enough sun to keep me out there. Later, it was nearly unbearable, and then I went downtown!

I thought so but I really couldn't see you so wasn't sure. We tried paddleboarding for the first time yesterday. It was fun.

Out of curiosity, I sailed to the boathouse where the gal was throwing Frisbees for her Jet-Skiing friends. It's the boathouse with two round tangerine-colored markers in front of it.

There didn't appear to be anybody home at your place, but you had a huge "Yacht" (the name said it was Laughing ) anchored off your place. There wasn't comfortable room for a second rafter, but I'd still write your legislators, to prevent rafters from tying up to your property.

A "Sky-Skier" was practicing in your area, off the old WMC property, and clearly didn't know that sailboats always have the ROW, and that 25-feet is too close to pass any boat—or structure. Her "launches" were blind, as I was directly in front of her on one occasion.

'Wonder if I'd given her boat a tap with my metal bow railing, if she'd pay attention to my recitation of New Hampshire boating laws?

Thanks

I would like to have taken my camera, but yesterday was on the windy side, and I couldn't risk another dunk of camera!

Some oversized boats also threw up some majorly cold water, which already made it risky enough for just me.

Are you talking to me, NH?

If so, we did go out for a boat ride around 1-1:30. When we came back there was a big boat moored in front. The location was not the best for others boats. Actually we were talking yesterday and saying someday there might be so many rafters that the boat will be full of them and there won't be any passage way for boats to travel through. And they don't pay any taxes, some of them don't even register their boats in this state, so we don't even get money from that.

I can't think of any boathouse with tangerine markers in front of it. I guess I am not very observant.

I know the Lake belongs to everyone but I would think that shore line owners with the absorbitant amount of taxes that they pay, should be able to expect some privacy from rafters.

I agree with you, Donzel. Or if not, reduce the taxes by a LOT! But of course there is no such expectation.

I managed to get some Sunday:

Here is the boathouse that WHL can't find.



The "tangerines" are behind the two "X"s.

(Shrink your screen to see the two of 'em).

...and a plastic snack-food wrapper. (Any plastic is illegal to litter in the Big Lake).

Now I know where you mean. That group does some pretty reckless things. They are related or friends with two other groups by the airport. They posted a video once on You Tube of a bike ramp they made and they rode the bike into the lake. One of them hurt his ankle badly and they videoed the whole thing, the Rescue Squad etc. Do you remember seeing that?

No trees to spoil the view...just like back in New Jersey.

A Weightless Passenger...

Post  News Hawk on Tue Jul 30, 2013 7:48 pm

This big Dragonfly decided to rest on my boat.

I'm always happy to have him aboard, as he is death to Horse Flies and Stable Flies—both of which hang around Tuftonboro Neck, looking for humans to:

1) Take a slice of skin (Horsefly).

2) Drain some blood...(Stable Fly).




I included the shadow of the veins in the Dragonfly's wings.

(Cool critter).

I made a video of a DragonFly pulling apart a house fly and it wasn't very pretty. They rip sections off the fly while it's still alive and the last bite kills it.
The fly just stared at the DF until it finally died. It looked like the DF want every bite to be fresh. I must have deleted the video because I can't find it.

Hmmm...

I watched a Dragonfly pulling apart a Horsefly, and it first removed the head—which fell into my boat—first thing. Most predators would want to prevent their prey from escaping, I'd think...

Then my lot must be forested in the "right" places: of course, if it's totally forested, it's forested in "right" places.

Yep.  I have neighbors who have just a little tiny spot to enter their property from the water and the geese go through there. They are persistent!
