Today I had my first "encounter" with a fan boat!  Noisy to say the  least 
and what would appear self evident, unnecessary on a water  body such as 
Lake Bomoseen.  Waterfowl took flight at the boat's  approach but how many of 
them did not return is uncertain.
Lake Bomoseen-Castleton (2360 acres), Rutland, US-VT
Nov 28, 2011 8:55  AM - 12:00 PM
Protocol: Stationary
Comments:      Temperature 54 degrees F.  Fan boat circled the lake at 
speed and  a high decibel level disturbing the waterfowl.  Observations made 
from  9 stations around the lake.
