    Bolton Landing, New York. On Lake George - "Queen of the American Lakes" "Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw; formed by a contour of mountains into a basin thirty-five miles long and from two to four miles broad, finely interspersed with islands, its water limpid as crystal and the mountainsides covered with rich groves of silver fir, white pine, aspen and paper birch down to the water, here and there precipices of rock to checker the scene and save it from monotony. An abundance of speckled trout, salmon trout, bass, and other fish with which it is stored, have added to our other amusements the sport of taking them.”—Thomas Jefferson" The Adirondack Park, the largest park preserve in the U. S comprising 6 million acres or 9,375 square miles. It’s as large as Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Everglades, Great Smoky National Park and the Grand Canyon, all wrapped into one. It’s larger than the state of New Hampshire.

    Todddavid - if you're going to be in the Bolton Landing area, send me a message! We're busy Saturday but hoping to be out on the lake Sunday.

    I'm kind of "partial" to Lake George, being that we live here full time now! Others feel that way too: https://www.oyster.com/articles/46677-the-6-most-beautiful-lakes-in-the-u-s/

    Sigbature 280 Waist tank?

    We had our original one removed, I think it was a 25 gallon metal tank for black water only. We replaced it with a 40 gallon plastic tank, and plumbed both black and grey water to it.

    Gotta love your dog....

    To save space on-board, we simply keep the doggy dock lashed to the grab rail center of the swim platform, then just fold it up against the transom locker and secure underway with a long bungie cord. That way we don't have to inflate/deflate each time, and our dog uses it every weekend day from May thru October.

    We went with the "doggy dock" from www.petclassics.com. Go to this link: http://www.petclassics.com/Water-Ramps-Steps/dog-on-water-ramp.29.html

    Holiday cocktails?

    Equal portions Bailey's Irish Crème and Vincent Van Gogh Double Espresso Vodka, over ice. Actually not just for the Holiday's, it is a favorite night cap on the dock after a great day boating!!!

    Shopping for boat

    I can only say that we love our 2002 280, which rebadged to the 290.

    I've always wanted to live on LG, and IMO, Bolton Landing is the nicest place there to live. We enjoy hiking, I ski, and both of us love boating. Also love the many excellent restaurants. Sounds like a perfect place to live!!!

    Chaparral 290 Problem with AC UNIT Need Advise Please

    Last year I had a brand new unit installed, as the old one bit the dust. The new unit is a 10,000 BTU MarineAir, verses original one was only 7,000 BTU. With the large capacity, I figured I would have a cooler boat quicker in the hot summer months. Well, mine too keeps on freezing if I set the target temp too low, too quickly. It's a real pain in the a$$, but if I step the temp down by manually adjusting it, eventually the cabin cools without the condenser freezing up. I have checked the thru hull fitting as well as the sea strainer, all clear. The filter, all clear. Water flow through hull (discharge), good flow. Is it possible that a new unit (less than 2 years old) is low on refrigerant?

    Todd - great pictures and stories to accompany them. We keep our boat at the south end of the lake, but do on occasion go all the way up to the northern end - a little pricey to go 32 miles and back, so maybe once a year. We do go to Log Bay and Red Rock Bay several times during the season. Can't wait till February when we make Bolton Landing our full-time home!
