26 August 2014 - 02:12 PMI know where Columbia meets the river but, Shoreline meets the river at Bridgeview. is the river closed at Bridgeview? Where exactly will the Shoreline closure be located ? Our boat maybe in the closure zone.
Shoreline is very close to Bridgeview. Operationally, we'll probably use that as the landmark for the closure. If you're boat is moored at your dock, it will not be a problem. You'll just have to leave it there during the period of the closure (or be out enjoying the boat during the closure).
21 August 2014 - 03:21 PMI believe it has been done in the past, but it has been a few years since the Blue Angels were in town and I can't say for sure. The location of the closure was set by the Blue Angels team.
At this time, it appears the river nearest the runway will remain open, but we will be patrolling to ensure that the river remains navigable, meaning no anchoring in the middle of the river.
Last, I think 40 minutes is a pretty reasonable estimate of how long it takes to get to Bridgeview.
16 August 2014 - 07:09 PM...and collect ID's and boat registration.
I know there's a requirement to have the registration on board, but is there any requirement (either federal or state) to have ID?? I don't think I've ever seen this anywhere. (MCMD can respond too from a state/local perspective).
I do generally have ID when on the boat, but rarely do on the jetski or dingy. I don't **think** I'm in violation of anything, but want to make sure.
No requirement to have a driver's license on board. If you were born after 1978 and operating a personal watercraft, or born after July 1,1996 and operating a motor boat, you must carry your Boater Safety certificate.
31 July 2014 - 06:09 PMThe parade is in the Clinton River. I believe it is starting at Markley Marine, heading up river to Bridgeview, back down river to the lake and then back to Markley.
24 May 2014 - 10:30 PMThe link to the DNR's Special Local Watercraft Control rules is below.
On page 132 you'll find the reference to the no-wake rules in the flats.
On page 74 you'll find the reference to the no-wake rules in St Clair Shores.
I hope this helps. Have a safe season!
