In addition, the police will give us a little more experience in curtailing boating under the influence offenders. We all know the problem exists, and whenever we can make the Merrimack River safer, we will make every effort to do just that.
We had several floats that we installed near Ram Island that we will no longer be launching for boaters’ use. We will advertise for an auction at the end of May. Written bids only will be accepted, and the successful bidders will need to remove the floats within a week of the auction. Submit bids to harbormaster at the Salisbury Town Hall. Â They are numbered with Roman numerals at the town pier on Ring’s Island for your inspection. The floats are well used and some of them are near or beyond their end of life cycle, but a good Yankee recycler can salvage some of them.
Ray Pike is Salisbury harbormaster.
