Exclamation One Thing Not To Forget!!!

Mariners can expect to see a greater Coast Guard presence on the water and in the air. Boaters should be prepared to show picture identification and may be questioned about their activity, particularly if they are operating or loitering in an area that might be of concern. Under Operation Liberty Shield, boaters should:

Be aware of existing security zones and Restricted Navigation Areas (RNA)
Stay at least 100 yards clear of any Navy vessel and maintain slow speed and comply with directions when within 500 yards of any Navy ship.
Monitor VHF-FM channel 16 for CG boating safety and security broadcasted information.
Avoid areas and activities that might be perceived as threatening or suspicious.
Be alert and report any suspicious or unusual activity to the Coast Guard or local law enforcement. The National Response Center Terrorism Hotline is: 1-800-424-8802
Be prepared to be stopped or questioned by the CG or local law enforcement, particularly if you are boating near tunnels, bridges, restricted areas or port facilities.
Information on waterways restrictions is available at any time on the U. S. Coast Guard Port Operations Information Line at 1-800-682-1796 or online: http://www.uscg.mil/safeports

Me neither...
I also read that this also includes Cruise ships. Boater's need to stay 100 yards from them as well... It was mentioned in the Star Ledger on Friday.

I would have to agree with Fred.

The world is not the same place that it was before sept 11th. We all must cooperate if we are to enjoy the same freedoms that we have in the past. National security is a burden that must be born by all.
