Comments and Feedback:  Yours is the kind of site I've started (but never completed) several times about my motorcycle trips. I hoped to provide some interesting tidbits and useful advice about the places I visited. Your site has got me to seriously consider cruising down to the Chesapeake via the C&D canal. The only additional piece of info I need is: "where can I stop every 45 minutes so my wife can relieve herself ?". If you have advice for finding such facilities (with running water), that would convince her to accompany me !

Comments and Feedback:  Hi, I grew up boating on a large lake in northern New Jersey (Large by New Jersey standards that is). I have recently relocated to a small town in central western New Jersey, near Frenchtown, New Jersey (not to far from New Hope, PA). I have a small ski boat (20' Baja). Do you think that I could use this size and style of boat could be operated safely on the Delaware River? Do you where I can find information regarding obstructions to boating on the Delaware (i.e., the location of dams and spill-ways)? Any advice you could provide would be very helpfull. Thanks,

Comments and Feedback:  I found your site by searching for Still Pond. I was just curious to see if it was on the web. We go there at least once a year. We were just there this past weekend (Aug. 3 & 4, 2002). We have a 28 ft Trohpy Classic hardtop. I enjoyed your website. I am a member of the USCGAUX. Actually, I am the Flotilla Public Education officer. My husband got me interested in Boating. He is into fishingand we are both are into exploring and rafting up. My husband needs to read the section 'just for guys' he thinks I have ESP sometimes. One story, a couple we know the wife drives most of the time. Well he thought he would take it out of the dock this time and he starts out and he is not going very well and he can;t figure out why.Finally someone from the dock yells "you are moving your trim tabs up and down not you outdrive......" Better go luch is over.

Comments and Feedback:  I like the idea of "Where do you boat"  We are in our 'off' season for boating down in Tampa right now, which means we have to take the afternoons off for the thunderstorms. BoatClix.com is coming along, and it takes most of my free time when I can't get out on the water. Would love to trade 'war stories' some time. Take Care.
