Tonight I had a message from Don, and here it is:
And now for the rest of the story as Paul Harvey would say........
I got a call back from the State Police Marine Division regarding my call. They did make a visit to the home of the driver of the boat. Unfortunately, he was not in so the officer explained the situation to his family and stated that Joe's Pond is not the proper venue for the air boat due to the excessive noise. The family said that he would not return to the pond with his boat. Time will tell but I personally doubt if we see and him again because we got the State Police involved.
The officer said that it is legal to operate an air boat on Vermont waters but that it more than likely exceeds the 82 decibel level at 50 feet noise limit.
I hope that this is the end of the story!!!!!!
AND TO DON WE SAY:
