Ahoy Riverbill,

Jim Sadowski & Glenn Sadowski here in Wiarton, Ontario with Riverbills....

Just yesterday, we arrived at our destination here in Wiarton. We brought the boat from Port Charles Harbor in St. Charles up here to Canada.

Jim in the photo is checking water depth. You can see the bottom here at 18 foot, but visibility to the bottom is greater than that in deeper water.

The other photos were taken at the Benjamin islands in the North Channel of Lake Huron (also in Canada).

We spent about three weeks getting here and will be here for couple more days until we fly home, out of Toronto on Monday.


Glenn & Jim

 

 

 

Thanks for taking RiverBills with you !

Sad News

  David Berg, D.O.

It is with great sadness to tell you that Dave Berg, D.O. has passed away. Dave and his wife JoAnn are long time river boaters. First at Yacht Club and then for many years at Port Charles Harbor. During their boating years they were active in many boating clubs including Anchor Yankers and Con Trios. They were also social members at Duck Club Yacht Club. I’m sure many of your readers would like to know his service arrangements.
 

Thank you!

Eighth District online newsroom

 

Coast Guard reminds public to watch for illegal passenger vessel operations


ST. LOUS -- The Coast Guard is advising the public to be aware of and avoid unlawful vessel charter operations on navigable waterways.

The Coast Guard has received reports from reputable sources including prominent members of the maritime community and legal passenger vessel operators about illegal passenger vessels conducting charter operations.

Unlawful operations include, but are not limited to:
•Charter services carrying a “Passenger for Hire” without a Coast Guard issued Merchant Mariner’s Credential consistent with offered services.
•Bareboat charter services that provide a vessel with a crew/master or carry more than 12 passengers onboard.
•Charter services that carry more than six passengers, at least one of which are for hire, and are not certified by the Coast Guard.

The public can request to see the captain’s Coast Guard credentials before making a payment.

“Passengers should understand the safety requirements before paying for boating services,” said Capt. Scott Stoermer, commander, Coast Guard Sector Upper Mississippi River. “People have a right to know they are paying for a safe voyage before handing over their money. Vessel-for-hire services with a captain who is not credentialed puts passengers and surrounding boats in danger. Anyone that suspects a passenger vessel is operating illegally should immediately contact the Coast Guard.”

The basic laws and definitions governing charter services can be found in Title 46 United States Code 2101 and Title 46 Code of Federal Regulations 175.000.

Boating Safety

MSHP:  Inexperience On The Water, Alcohol A Deadly Concoction........

 

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says that there are too many people hitting the lake, streams and rivers without being prepared.  This inexperience is proving to be fatal, and is a growing problem.

 

According to Corporal Charles Bowles with the MSHP, people are unaware of the dynamics of the water and this can be a tragic situation.

 

Bowles adds that many of the drownings they respond to involve people that wade out, believing that they are alright, but the water increases in depth and they drown........

Illinois River Near Beardstown, Illinois

Man's Torso Washed Up In The Illinois River, Officials Release Sketch........

 

Back in 2016, a commercial fisherman spotted the torso of a man floating in the Illinois River near Beardstown, Illinois.  At that time, foul play was suspected.  The county coroner said that the limbs had been removed from the body.

 

The investigation was active for better than seven months, however, little progress was made by the Peoria County Sheriff's Office in identifying the torso.

 

Not too long ago, a skull washed up near Kingston Mines and the Illinois State Police Crime Lab collected a DNA sample.  The DNA from the skull matched the DNA of the torso.  A forensic artist created and released a drawing of the man's face........

News Release


NEWS RELEASE

July 6, 2018

EMPHASIS: BWI Sobriety Checkpoint To Be Conducted At Lake Of The Ozarks

Captain Michael A. Turner, commanding officer of Troop F, Jefferson City, announces that a BWI sobriety checkpoint will be conducted on Lake of the Ozarks sometime in July.

According to the most recent 2017 U.S. Coast Guard recreational boating crash statistics, alcohol use is the leading known contributing factor in fatal boating crashes.

Boaters who come across a checkpoint on the water may be stopped. Officers will keep the contact brief with the operator and perform a basic safety check of the boat’s equipment. If the officer suspects the operator to be under the influence of intoxicants and/or drugs, they will be asked to submit to a field sobriety test. All efforts will be made to keep the process as brief as possible. The Missouri State Highway Patrol appreciates the public’s cooperation.

“Operating a boat while impaired is just as dangerous -- and just as illegal -- as driving a car while impaired," stated Captain Turner. "To ensure the safety for all people on the water, boaters should designate a sober operator for their vessel anytime their plans include alcohol.”

Watercraft operators must consider the effect their actions have on others: Share the waterway and use common sense, good judgment, and courtesy to ensure the safety of all. Life jackets save lives. Wear It!! Follow Troop F on Twitter for the most current news @MSHPTrooperF.
