    greebs, minks, snakes, we evevn saw a blue tailed skink.

    Hi Michael,

    Beautiful boat, beautiful location and I'm sure a totally memorable experience, but where are the PFD's for those kids?

    Ooh! Chris is right. New York State law requires children under 12 years of age to wear a Type I or Type II life jacket when on board any vessel less than forty feet when underway. This includes rowboats and canoes.

    I should have recognized Blue Mountain Lake - You are right - beautiful place to paddle, sail or just hang out!

    Thanks for the heads up on the PFD's,
    the kids normaly just sit on them being as they are bolth
    good swimmers and very comfortable on the water.
