    Bostonian: You keep a boat on Winni? Might be taking a road trip there with ours in August. Love that lake. Lake George is a definite (has become an annual trip-with several LK Hopatcong boats) Have fun at Naswa. Our version here on Lake Hopatcong (The Jefferson House) is a really fun place. Weekend weather looking good at this distance, can't wait to get on the water.

    I haven't had the time to start prepping mine yet. No clue when I will be going in.

    A good Sunday and Monday out on the water. A few people ventured in but I did not. (report was it is still pretty cool). Schedule so full for June that it may be a little while before going out again but by that time hopefully the temp will have risen and it will be time to ski. This years Lake George trip starting to get planned.

    Hooray for Mother Nature. Looks like we will be able to get out Sunday. Maybe the 1st ski of the season.

    Probably not the kind of boating you guys are talking about. But we all love being on the water right? Spent most of the day clearing brush and debris to maintain passage through some upper reaches of the river. Plus some channel measurement and sampling in the salt marsh. Such a great time of year to be exploring! But then again, when isn't it?

    Nice! I'm thinking of throwing an electric trolling motor on my 17 foot canoe.

    Every try that?

    Yup, I have one on the boat in that picture (17' Grumman). Works great.

    Yesterday morning was a shitshow on the water! Pea soup fog didn't prevent a thousand yahoos from blasting around at top speed. We were out working on a 70' research vessel. We could see people coming on the radar. So we knew they were there, but they didn't know we were. Had a dozen close calls that would have ended very badly if we hadn't been paying attention.
    What are people thinking?

    Sounds like you're eluding to consequences of one's actions. I hear ya'...boats with lots of insurance = swap it out if damaged and let the lawyers go at it....to hell with respect for others and rules of the waters/road....the same goes for drivers...
