Advice From the US Coast Guard About Boats 

If you have a boat still make sure it’s securely tied up or stored well above the high tide line.That advice tonight from the US Coast Guard. It follows a weekend when the Coast Guard responded to seventeen reports of unattended boats in waters off Maine and New Hampshire. The Coast Guard treats every unattended boat as a person in the water until it can be proved there was no one on board.To figure that out, they have to locate the owner.The Coast Guard also reminds boat owners to attach indentifying information to their watercraft, even kayaks an canoes.
