WATER PATROL

COMMERCIAL TRAFFIC

  • Tow boats have priority over recreational boaters.

  • Do not anchor or drift in the main channel or navigate too close to a tow boat.

  • When overtaking a tow, stay to one side or the other and out of the turbulent wake, which can flip a small craft.

  • Keep the pilot house in sight at all times.  If you see the pilot of the tow boat, he can see you and you will avoid the large danger zone or blind spot of the leading barges.
