Looking into adding a boathouse to our property, does anyone know any local contractors you have worked with and would recommend?  Thanks in advance.

Not looking to start anything, as I'm fuzzy on all of the rules, but I thought you couldn't build new boathouses but only fix up old ones that were grandfathered in. Maybe it depends on the zoning of each lot? Sorry that I don't have any recommendations and hijacked your thread....slightly.

You can still build boat houses but they have to be on shore with a rail system running up into them.

And can be only used for boats and boating related equipment, honored more in the breach than the observance.

Good idea! Much better then the old wet boat houses at any rate.

Seems to be on the "honor" system.   I wonder what would happen if a dime were to get dropped?

I've seen several "boathouses" that appear to never have had a boat near them....   They are the requisite 5 or so feet from the water...   I should take a few pics next summer and post them on here....  

The wakemup side of taylor's Island has the oldest, if you are out roaming around.   There are others...

I don't feel too strongly about any of this, but why are we taking pictures and "dropping dimes" about this???

Because people are building "boathouses"in violation of regulations, by lying about them?  

Why have rules if they aren't going to be enforced?

Thanks to those that have PM’d some contacts.

I plan to use mine for boat storage, but if you read the regulations on Boathouses or WOAS structures there is no requirement to put a boat in it.  They cannot be used for human habitation though.

Ok, carry on with your discussion.

Are there the same number of rules about building a boathouse as there are about a $2M house that requires clear cutting half an acre, a road to drive your golf cart down to the lake, and enough lights that you can see it from space?

      Don't mean to pick a scab here, but the mods have asked for more engagement from members, so I'm trying. I've never been up to VNP, but am looking at camping on KAB in early June. Would be heading up from the Twin Cities. Neither my buddy or I have been up there before, and we would not be going if we didn't know ahead of time we had a campsite reserved.  Without that assurance we would just stay at one of our families cabins in the Brainerd Lakes area instead.

      The Pike River is almost wide open today! It will not be long now before they start the walleye netting! Cliff

      If I were you I’d run only what the manufacturer recommends. If it’s a Suzuki brand lube I’d only use that. For peace of mind and if anything were to happen you can say your were running the recomnded fluids. Also your local dealer should have everything you would need and can help you out if you have any questions. Not sure about the other fluids you mentioned but that’s what I would do if I were you. Good luck

      I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?

      Hi Guys - believe it or not I just realized there are all these great boat-in camping opportunities on Kab and other lakes. My buddy and I are looking at reserving a site in early June, and since we're so late to the game our options are fairly limited. I've read through this thread to get a little idea of what's what on Kab, and none of the ones mentioned are currently available the weekends we're looking at going . But it's good to know Moxie island is about 2 miles from the Visitor Center, which gives me a frame of reference for how far some of the other sites are. The ones that are available tend to be open a lot - and I'm not sure if it's because of their location or quality of the site. For what it's worth it would be 2 guys, using my buddies 17 ft boat, and ideally going after walleye. Are any of these sites ones you wouldn't send your worst enemy to? Cutover Island South K6
      Northland K24 - (this one is hardly ever booked)
      Windigo K35
      LaBounty's PT K14
      Grassy Island K9
      Peterson PT K25 (realize it would be better to use the Ash River launch for this location)

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run
    • Rick G
      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris. 
    • gunner55
      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.
