Hot Off the Press!

Last night I was reviewing notes from a recent boater safety roundtable, and as I read, I heard the voices attached to the names. Another Local Notice to Mariners arrived in my email, and guess what? It may be the same information, the same charts and graphs, the same documentation and warnings — and it is ALL important. I wish everyone with a boat would read the LNM, posted under Boater Safety Information on the New NY Bridge website.

Another crisp day, seen from an EarthCam® construction camera at the marina in Tarrytown.

While it’s not possible to close off the river for five years — bedlam would ensue! — it is imperative that boaters be aware of what’s going on out there.

I’d like to know what you think.

    I believe you already know how I feel but I expand on the issue more fully here: http://captrobchichester.blogspot.com/2013/05/the-pursuit-of-information.html.

    The forewarned is fore-armed!

      Thanks, Capt. Chichester. I remember the encyclopedia, too. While I’m not a boater, I am a licensed driver, and every morning (as well as several times a day), I check traffic and weather. Circumstances, construction, detours, maybe rain — it can change in a minute, and who knows how often? As I wrote in another post, the LNM is easy to read, and details the channel and RNA clearly.
