My opinion is leave the boats there if people want to use them they can do it at their own risk. I would also suggest start removing things from old lumbering camps and hunting camps fist as most of that stuff is useless where some of the boats can still be used

This is true I would say this stuff is much more of an eyesore than stashed boats that can still be used, this other junk has no use

Kyle,

There are two separate issues that evolved over this lengthy thread. When I originally posted, I felt the amount of decrepit, unsafe and abandoned boats should be considered trash and removed. Then others expanded the topic to state pros and cons of the boats remaining that might still be functional. A large group seems to think this is Adirondack tradition and that it is ok as long as they are not chained up for others to use. Another group feels that it is no different than littering and if you carry it in, then carry it out. No ones mind ever gets changed on these forums but I was surprised by how much interest (and passion) the topic generated.

My point was that for those people who are worried about eyesore theirs alot more then boats to be removed so start somewhere where they are not going to get so much public opposition such as old camps.

A lot of us do carry out more than we carry in, but lugging a few beer bottles is different than a rotting boat.

I agree with that so leave the boats alone
