Port J
Many boaters are expressing frustration due to kayak and paddle board renters traveling in the clearly marked boating Channel on the Bass River. We've heard some renters say "you don't own the river" when we've politely suggested to them to safely travel outside of the boating Channel when you see boaters in their designated areas. For their own safety, kayak and paddle board renters should be educated to stay out of the boating Channel and safely near shore. Can an educational program be given to each renter before someone gets accidentally injured ??? It Only takes one accident to spoil a fun day on the water. Tourists need to be educated... Who should provide that education? Hopefully you will take that responsibility seriously so that everyone can enjoy a great day and feel safe on the water. Thanks!
