NH Marine Patrol to participate in national effort to try and cut down on drunken boating crashes
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire's Marine Patrol will be participating in a national effort this weekend to try to cut down on drunken boating crashes.
Operation Dry Water runs from Friday through Sunday, before the Fourth of July holiday.
Col. Robert Quinn of the New Hampshire State Police says officers will be on the water to enforce boating laws and raise awareness about the dangers of boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
It's part of a national effort launched by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators along with the U.S. Coast Guard.
