Paddle boat owner building dock at Webster Lake, says no permit needed

Paddle boat owner building dock at Webster Lake, says no permit needed
News from Worcester Telegram:

WEBSTER — The owner of a controversial 75-foot paddle boat is building an approximately 150-foot dock along the shore of an empty 8,276-square-foot lot on the opposite side of Webster Lake from his Indian Ranch campground and concert venue.

Christopher Robert, president of Webster Ventures, would neither confirm nor deny the new dock was for the 59-ton boat, called the Indian Princess.

When asked why else would he need such a large dock, Mr. Robert said, “I have no problem with you saying that (it is for Indian Princess), but I can’t comment on that, OK.”

The Webster Ventures-owned land is listed as “residential developable land” at 9 Loveland Road. The company bought it in August for $ 85,000, according to assessor records.

The company did not seek a permit for the dock, on the grounds that it doesn’t need one.

A dock on the Loveland Road parcel is different from the company’s original proposal to accommodate the paddle boat.

The company has applied to the Zoning Board of Appeals to enlarge Indian Ranch’s marina, which has 26 boat slips, by adding 40 slips.

But Mr. Robert’s lawyer has asserted that the company would not move forward with the ZBA application until the town’s consultant was removed from the ZBA process. Webster Ventures has alleged that the consultant has a conflict of interest.

Mr. Robert brought his boat…………… continues on Worcester Telegram

Lake Lanier boating crackdown pays off

Lake Lanier boating crackdown pays off
News from Atlanta Journal Constitution:

In June, law enforcement searched Lake Lanier for the body of a boy killed when an alleged drunk boater slammed a speeding craft into his family’s pontoon.

Search crews eventually discovered 13-year-old Griffin Prince. They also found something else — more drunk boaters. The crews arrested the drivers of several vessels passing the accident scene, charging them with boating under the influence.

The tragic deaths of Griffin and his 9-year-old brother Jake, and the arrest of the man piloting the other boat, received intense publicity. But it didn’t deter some from drinking and boating.

Since that June 18 accident, Department of Natural Resources rangers have stepped up writing tickets, issuing more than 40 BUI tickets at Lake Lanier. That’s more than rangers at Lanier wrote in any entire year since 2007.

Not only have BUIs increased at Lake Lanier, citations of all kinds so far this year are nearly double that of all of last year.

DNR Capt. Mark Padgett shrugged when asked about this summer’s increase in enforcement at the lake.

“It’s not like there has been any saturation teams here,” said Padgett, who oversees DNR enforcement in the 19 counties of north Georgia. “These are the same guys we’ve had.”

The agency has added three rangers to his district since last summer, two of them coming on since July 1, for a total at 26……………. continues on Atlanta Journal Constitution

DNR stresses boating safety following Monday’s lake tragedy

DNR stresses boating safety following Monday’s lake tragedy
News from Access North Georgia:

UNDATED – In light of this week’s deadly boating accident on Lake Lanier, officials with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources are stressing the importance of boating safety… especially after dark.

“You know, we see a lot of accidents during the day, but we see the worst accidents during the night,” said DNR Sgt. Greg Colson.

Colson told Fox 5 News there have been three boating fatalities on the lake so far this year, and all three occurred at night and involved boats.

He also said alcohol is often a factor in boating accidents, including the one that took the life of a 9-year-old boy and his 13-year-old brother on Monday night in the Shoal Creek area of Lake Lanier.

Authorities said the driver of the boat that hit the boat those brothers were riding in has been charged with boating under the influence.

“There’s no reason for somebody to be on this lake drinking and driving a boat,” Colson said. “You see a lot of speed and a lot of people having fun, but if you’re responsible with it, you’re fine.”

Nonprofit Sea Tow Foundation donates life jackets, whistles for Lake boaters
News from Orlando Sentinel:

By Julia Glum, Orlando Sentinel
8:39 a.m. EST, June 5, 2012

The Sea Tow Foundation has donated about 60 life jackets and more than 50 safety whistles to theLake County Sheriff’s Office.

The donations came as part of the nonprofit’s life-jacket loaner program. The foundation has given the Sheriff’s Office more than 350 jackets and whistles since the program started in 2008.

The items will go to three Lake loaner stations — Fisherman’s Cove in Tavares, Venetian Cove Marina in Leesburg and Mount Dora Marina and Boating Center in Mount Dora — where boaters needing life jackets can borrow them for free. They come in all sizes.

Fisherman’s Cove manager Rusty Hinkle said every life jacket someone has borrowed at his location has been returned. But “if they don’t come back, we’re happy that they’re using them,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sea Tow Services International has put out a list of tips for boaters as we head into hurricane season. They include making sure your boat is insured, having a storm plan, make a video inventory of valuables and electronics on your boat and storing insurance and other important documents in a secure place off t…………… continues on Orlando Sentinel

Lake Norman boating mishap spurs action

Lake Norman boating mishap spurs action
News from WCNC:

by Joe Marusak / The Charlotte Observer

WCNC.com

Posted on March 1, 2012 at 12:45 PM

The Lake Norman Marine Commission intends to establish its first rules governing boat rentals, after a Charlotte woman was seriously injured when the propeller of a 24-foot rental piloted by an inexperienced driver ran into her last summer.

“That accident put a lot of this to the forefront,” marine commission Chairman Ron Shoultz of Iredell County said this week.

The commission is forming a panel to recommend rules for a new ordinance governing rentals on the lake, Shoultz said.

Dustin Keith, who owns a company that rents boats on the lake, said Wednesday that he proposed the idea for the ordinance in a letter to the commission in January. The ordinance could address such issues as insurance, training and whether instructional rides are needed before a renter can take a boat on the lake, Keith said.

Any rules the commission comes up with can’t supersede existing state and federal laws, Shoultz said. The commission might not be able to require that all renters pass a safety course, for instance, because no proo…………… continues on WCNC

Lake Conroe attracts few visitors for Labor Day weekend

Lake Conroe attracts few visitors for Labor Day weekend
News from Your Houston News:

LAKE CONROE – Activity on Lake Conroe was low Saturday as Labor Day weekend moved into full swing.

Swimmers and boaters were scarce, and those enjoying the slightly cooler temperature were disappointed with the water level being down 4.7 feet, which is a foot lower than 3.7 feet a month ago on Aug. 3.

The San Jacinto River Authority ordered a gradual release of 50 million gallons of water from Lake Conroe to the city of Houston on Aug. 15 to help the lake level in Houston for operational needs. The amount released daily reached 150 million gallons on Aug. 18, the equivalent of half an inch each day.

Mike Frerichs was one of the boaters out on Lake Conroe Saturday with friends. When his boat stalled in the late afternoon, he said he would be back out on the lake next week once he fixes it.

Frerichs, of Midland, said he travels 25 miles often to enjoy Lake Conroe, despite the decreasing water levels and the “very difficult” nature of entering and exiting hi…………… continues on Your Houston News
