If I didn't invest money and effort in what I though was a live free or die mentality, I'd leave as well.


But as many have done in the past, I'm here to fight for freedom and less governmental control.

How is it BS you tool? And nice language !!

I am real, the speed limit is what is BS.

I bought a 2nd home on the lake in 07 at the age of 39 after working my a** of to do so. The reasons we chose the lake were many but not living in a restrictive state was one of them ( home is CT and NH is headed there)

The more regulations you put on people, the more infrastructure you need to police it. Policing it costs tax payer dollars and then gets misused requiring more tax dollars.

With the restrictions that a few fought for and won ( its your right to do so ) there will be move services needed. Welcome to income tax, I hope you're ready and have the funds that people with "race boats" do so you can feed your family.

Still bs ????

Speed limits are here to stay, like it or not. Though as per last week's Sun article, perhaps they should be consistent statewide, similar to Squam, for the bigger lakes. And I won't rely on 2 year old data regarding an economy emerging from recession. The businesses that I speak to say that this has been an incredible summer. I'd like to know what the numbers are in the lake's region come September. I'm sorry some marina's are not doing as well even if others are doing better. I'm sorry they are not selling boats that people are now unwilling to buy. When one door closes, another opens. Buggy whip sales are way down as well, but car sales are more than making up the difference. So yes I "feel" happier, as do my friends, family, and neighbors. After all, happiness is a sensation that people do feel based on input from their surroundings. In our case the surroundings are quieter and more peaceful (and let's not get started on that inane switchable exhaust bill. There are far fewer performance boats going by where I live, but for unit of speed they are not quieter. They are quieter because they are going more slowly).
  So yes, the speed limit is here to stay. Let's get on with our lives.  Stop grousing and enjoy the rest of the summer. It will be over before we know it.

Radar was given to the NHMP.

Writing a ticket costs no extra money, but even if the officer doesn't show up in court, are you likely to continue to be a scofflaw, again—given that an error could result in a drowning?

I guess if it was BS, you'd stop responding.

But radicals are radicals and they need the attention.

You posted this @ 11:00pm from Vermont. Were you out on Lake Winni at this time of night using Fair Point?
I don't think so.

It really doesn't make any difference anyway, I don't blame you for indulging in daydreaming about something you desire so much. NH is a great state and has much more to offer then VT. Maybe someday you can get out of that cow state and join us in the "Live Free or Die" state.

Happy dreaming. Smile

Loud exhausts alert us to danger, but the intent was to draw attention to themselves—based on Ego and Narcissism.

A Winnipesaukee radical is one who moves in, plays loud music, and wants even more noise on

I also would request that you don't post people's names that they use on other forums. Maybe I am wrong? What do you think? Should we be allowed to do that or not? Admin?

Why bother? It's real names that are specified in the rules.

Would we have a problem with APSound?

Well, if someone does have a problem, just say so. I don't think it is fair to mention those "other names" but if it doesn't bother you, that's fine.

Did I see the Sumrluvr is the past president of SBONH yet would make such a low life comment regarding the jet ski accident that occurred today? His group must have no credibility whatsoever.

Yes, if that is how someone wants to express themselves, I should not be trying to manipulate facts and information to make the lake the way "I" want. People forget public space is just that, public. So I am guilty of thinking its ok to make noise. Do I always like what I hear and see, no, but that is part of life. It's when others try to push their views on others that I feel is a bigger issue.

And what is your issue with my screen name, my daughters came up with it from pets names and the LI sound that we boat on when not at the lake?

As long as you are happier you can keep thinking that.

A. Hold on to your beloved speed limit while you can. Smarter heads will prevail.
B. SBONH is very well respected because we are not a one hit wonder. We continue to work with multiple groups, agencies and continue to grow. Winnfabs are defunct and everyone saw what they were all about.
C. I see you didn't mention the follow up to the comment "in all seriousness" which shows that the first line was in jest. However why let the facts get in the way.
D. I see two names of victems that were part of tragic accidents constantly thrown around by SL supporters on this forum. Blaming speed. I also sat in multiple hearings where these two accidents were mentioned by SL supporters to push their agenda attributing them directly to speed. However, the MP and even the state prosecuters never attributed these accidents to speed but rather tried to prove "alcohol" as the leading cause. Which it absolutely was. But why let the facts get in the way when you have an agenda to push?

Thanks for playing though.

The way I "want" it, is the way is was; before the vandals, the rudeness of trespassers, the rudeness of scofflaws, and the rude noisemakers who come here from states that can afford to enforce their laws.

Have you noticed that public restrooms are the worst kind? (And that private restrooms are new, clean, non-smelly, and not vandalized?) Maybe you've missed Massachusetts' public restrooms signs saying, "Don't urinate on the building".

You're OK with a lit cigar in a hospital's nursery?

You mean: like opening rafting to crowd more people into tighter places?

(New York City comes to mind).

You mean: to allow switchable exhaust, so the rudest among us can "open her up" send out the most noxious odors at higher speeds, and get a thrill regardless of those who insist on a peaceful enjoyment of New Hampshire's biggest lake—the "Jewel in the Crown" of New Hampshire's lakes?

Your "rights" end at my nose.

I imagine some of the cowboys on Lake George said the same thing 20 years ago. Fortunately the speed limit on our lake was supported by the highest margin yet in a House represented in part by some of the most reactionary right wing members in recent history, most of whom were sent packing after the last election.  Good luck.
