Most boaters on the lake know him as Mighty Mo. He spent his time monitoring the radios and telling boaters when a storm was coming up. He was a really neat guy. It is the end of an era.*******

About five years ago, his sight was restored by two Wolfeboro doctors: Dr. Eric Lewis determined the route for sight restoration, and surgery was performed by Dr. Wm. Marsh.

I never met Mr. Whall but I "talked" to him many times. He was the "radio check" on my boat safety list. He helped me start many seasons on the big lake.

I am very sad about this news. Although I didn't know him, we always looked forward to his weather reports when out on the boat. If I am not mistaken he was pretty active politically for a while. I think he attended all the school board meetings. I wonder if anybody will ever come along to be the voice of the lake again.
