cochise Could just be Gods way of cleaning the waters. Boat lifts and dry docks are the way to go...Ever live around salt?

snagged up The first line of defense is on the boat owner IMO.
You either care or you don't.

Hope for the best because if you do some research you will see the devastation that can occur.

I grew up in Michigan and have family there.
This is where the problem started.
It can get expensive to remove mussels from the plumbing of a reservoir.

cochise Maybe they would then be willing and more able to actually open the ramps before light and until dark. Bankers hours at the ramps is some of the rudest dumbassery we have ever been handed from the superheroes the cpw.

I think the biggest difference is the level of commitment Colorado has made to the inspections. Wyoming does an inspection at the border or a the entrance to a lake, but you can fairly easily get around them if you choose.

I bought a sticker for Nebraska last year, but I never had to do an inspection.

Our system is far from perfect. I really think it should be reformed. But it is more likely to keep our lakes clean than the other systems.

That said, I think it is a lost cause. I left Powell today, and the girl who did the inspection was on her first day (and I think I was her first boat). Total waste of time as she had no clue what she was doing. I could go on and on, but if it really only take a cup of water from a contaminated boat to infect a lake, I don't see how we will keep it out now that Powell is infected. Too many boats go between that lake and ours.

Perhaps the convenience factor for Us in Colorado that adds to the price?
I know if You go to Wyo. You better have a tag on Your boat from a reciprocal state...
OR its a pain in the ass to get an inspection for use on those waters...
Probably the same for Nebraska..?
At least here in Co... Most lakes have an ANS station right there...
Makes it easy...

Bionic Man Iíve seen a lot of photos of then damage the mussels have done. But i will tell you itís a different feeling when you see them screwing something you personally own. Really hits home when that happens.
