  2. Gill-T, Not trying to be a jerk, but batteries can go dead in a cell phone also and most don’t float. The Radio I carry is portable that floats and automatically activates a distress call with GPS coordinates, Boat name and emergency contacts with a single press of a button. My real question was do others in the Finger Lakes use VHF Marine Radios and do they monitor them when on the water? Also do the local CG, Sheriff, State Police also monitor the VHF marine frequencies? And Yes I also always have my cell and will be adding the CG number to my contacts. Always good to have backup.

  3. Flairs seem to be a big issue because of the expiration date and getting a tickets. But prior to moving to the Finger Lakes I fished mostly the Hudson River, Long Island sound and a little off shore around Montauk. I was always told the 2nd most important piece of safety equipment was the VHF Radio, right after life jackets. Most of the time I am on the water in the Finger Lakes I have my VHF radio on, scanning the frequencies but seldom hear any chatter. Do others have radios and do people keep them on? Are they monitored for distress calls? Just wondering what others are doing. Thanks. Jim K.
  4. I am amazed on the amount of comments on this thread and I have been trying to hold my tongue. I don’t mind law enforcement being on the water and doing checks, we all have to follow the laws whether in a boat, car, motorcycle, snowmobile or whatever. If you are out of compliance be it for flairs, registration, speeding, etc. well, you pay the price. What bothers me is they are never around when the jet skis are running 10 feet off my dock at 50 MPH. Or after the fireworks, or other events on the lake, when boats are running WOT down the lake at night, where are they then? I think it’s great that law enforcement is taking an active role on the water in the Finger Lakes. I just hope they do it in a way that will provide the most impact for our overall safety with the least amount of disruption to our time. Note: I have almost 20 hours on Seneca lake this season and have not been stopped, so I have to ask, is this a case of 10% of the people making 90% of the noise. Jim K.
  5. Stopped by Sampson today. The entrance to the marina from the lake is open. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. So to be clear I don’t think NYS sold the marina to anyone. The state still owns the land but has leased the operation of the marina. At least that is what I understand. By the way. Happy Easter. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I stopped by Sampson yesterday. Looks like they are working on the ramp and finished setting the pilings for the docks. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Sorry, Did not make it up last weekend. Planning on heading up this weekend will let you know.
  9. I got a call from the governor’s office, in reply to a letter I sent them about Sampson Park Marina. I guess the only new news is that they have recently secured all the final approvals and funding to complete the entire project. So, the expectation is, barring bad weather, that the ramps should be open in time for Memorial Day. At least that is the plan they are all driving to. I was told that there will be a formal announcement in the next few weeks with more details on the project. I asked about access, ramp fees, and some other stuff, but many the details are still being worked out. I will be up that way next week and will post more pictures if there is any noticeable progress. Jim K.
  10. If you are heading North there is Sampson State Park with several playgrounds, a swimming beach, and a fishing pier. Still further North at the north end of the lake in Geneva, is Seneca Lake State Park. It also has several playgrounds and a swimming beach but my grand kids loved the water spray park. Just FYI its for younger kids. My grand kids are between the ages of 2 and 7. There are also bike paths and a new welcome center that is very nice. If you are up north and have never seen a canal lock in operation the locks along the Cayuga Seneca Canal are a great place to visit. If you get thirsty on the way up or back, Bottomless Brewing is a good place to rest, if its not to crowded, it has good beer and is kid friendly. They have ping pong, shuffleboard and corn hole games all inside. Keeps the grand kids occupied for a least a few cold ones. I hope you enjoy your trip. The finger lakes are a beautiful place.
  11. Any word on when it might be done? I sent a letter to the NYS parks commission but no response. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
