Salt water fish are huge. I mean look at Moby Dick for instance. I guess it is because they have so much room to grow in perhaps. Or maybe everything tastes better with a little salt. mRegardless the stories are there. Here is a list of the ones that didn't get away to achieve New Hampshire State records.

Best Flood Insurance Companies so that your wallet does not go under water

Best Flood Insurance Companies

A bad storm could flood your world in debt and loss. Your wallet does not need to go under water protecting your home.

As a first step I suggest looking at the FEMA site to see if your home might be in a flood zone. Visit https://msc.fema.gov/portal/home

In New Hampshire Insurance companies are brokers and the rates for insurance is federally mandated. However there are many aspects that impact rates. I encourage you to discuss these options with a company that knows.  I have engaged one insurance company to talk with with any questions on whether you need flood insurance or not.

Seems Floods are happening more frequently. Hurricanes seem bigger and more devastating. In New Hampshire we had the "Mothers Day Floods" in 2006 when 12-16 inches of rain in 2 days. Some rivers completely changed directions. Many people assume they aren’t at risk if they are not living in a designated flood plain, Surprisingly 20 and 25 percent of all flood victims live outside of a high-risk area.  

Nearly all flood insurance policies are underwritten by the NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) and serviced by independent insurance companies like the one I mentioned above, Rates and coverage are the same no matter which company you select. When choosing a flood insurance company, you should learn about the company as a whole to make the best choice.

Here is a link to several companies to compare.

Mother Nature can act like "a Mother" sometimes. Respect her. 

 

Making our docks longer.

There are always the question of what to do with seasonal docks. So what is happening in halls of the State of New Hampshire government.

I am often asked about if you can simply add to a dock. A Seasonal dock means docks that can come out. Not on Piers.

??Both House and Senate Committees spent much of 2017 on this subject of extending the length of temporary seasonal docks as well as permitting requirements for temporary seasonal boat lifts. Senate Bill 119 has passed both the House and Senate but in different versions.

There seems to be a consensus on allowing the extension of such docks to 50 feet, as opposed to the current 40 feet. However, the House and Senate negotiators will need to meet in a committee of conference to iron out several other differences in the Bill before sending it to the Governor for his signature.?? And new in 2018 is House Bill 1371, which seeks to eliminate certain lot size and setback permitting requirements for seasonal docks. This helps those on small lots very common in waterfront properties in NH.

The New Hampshire Association of Realtors (NHAR) supports passage of the bill.

We will see how it goes. 

Thank you
