Getting Ready

Only the Coast Guard, state police or local marine police units have enforcement powers on the river, where warning signs will be placed.

Scott Croft, vice president, Hudson River Boat & Yacht Club Association, Inc., understands boating activities will be limited.

“The river is a navigable waterway and has to stay open, and commercial boats need safe passage,” Croft said. “The (U.S.) Coast Guard usually sends advanced local notices to mariners, advising restrictions.”

Since September 11, 2001, boats are no longer permitted to anchor near the Tappan Zee Bridge. “We know it (bridge) needs to be replaced, and boaters will need to be vigilant and on the lookout,” Croft said.

I’d like to know what you think.
