Sheriff’s Dept. Reminds Boaters to Stay Safe

This Memorial Day weekend many people will be boating and the Mason County Marine Division wants to remind you to be safe.

The marine patrol will be monitoring Lake Michigan and inland lakes this holiday weekend.

To stay safe, they want to make sure you have enough life jackets for everyone on the boat. Children 12 and under must wear life jackets at all times.

If you’re thinking about drinking, make sure to stay under the legal limit which is .10.

They will be writing tickets this weekend, the most common is for not having enough life jackets on board.
