    I have been and am currently a member of the environmental groups cited in this story, and a recreational boat owner and it disappoints me that that, while it appears they are arguing it’s the process and not the actual proposal they have issue with, I believe their true intention is to reduce recreational boating in the Adirondacks. Is there not room for other ways to recreate without putting on a backpack, grabbing a walking stick and hitting a trail, or paddling a kayak? I have done all of those in my life, but now it’s being on a boat – power and sail – that gives me solace. I am also not young anymore. Boaters need quality facilities and many of the marinas I see in the Adirondacks are limping along without investment or improvements in decades. There is room for all of us. This project should proceed.

    Warning??I did not issue a warning. I simply made a comment. A warning is the reporters bias. Very unprofessional. I’m very disappointed in the explorer for choosing to publish something so inflammatory.
