could anyone let me know about the latest news on the cumbrian
council trying to ban waterskking on englands biggest lake.
this must be one of britains most beutiful skking locations.
I know there has been a few accidents here,this year some one
from my own town blackpool had a leg amputated when a cruiser failed
to see the skier and ran over his legs.
but most sports have fatal injurys. eg moutaineering
if windomere gets a ban it could have a knock on effect to other
lakes in england,scotland,wales.

This is by no means an official answer but......

I have been looking to buy a boat and while costing everything, I
phoned the tourist info centre and asked them about costs etc. and I
mentioned the speed restrictions.  To which their reply was 'IF there
is to be a ban it won't be until 4 years time at the minimum !

As you are from Blackpool and I am from Rochdale, just down the road,
maybe you could advise me on the following:

Where is the best place in the North West to pick up a second hand
boat, suitable for sking for arround 2500 pounds ?  Are Fletcher boats
any good ?

Look forward to your reply,

Greg
