Bridge Etiquette

2010parade1Boating under one of our channel bridges can cause some confusion and unnecessary delays. When a boat approaches the channel, if it can be seen from the other side, it can proceed through the channel if it enters the buoys before a boat coming from another lake. If a boat is in the channel another boater can follow that boat through if that second boat can be seen from the other lake. Generally speaking, several boats going under the bridge and then alternating to allow boaters from the other lake to enter the channel and pass makes for a smooth run. Alternating in groups makes for pleasant travel. Please be safe and courteous.
