The Sheepscot Lake Association in Palermo has kicked off Courtesy Boat Inspections for the 2016 summer season.

Sam Falla, Alli Callahan and Jon Boynton will conduct the inspections at the Route 3 public boat launch on Sheepscot Lake, which are free and voluntary to all boaters.

Because invasive plants are found in lakes all around mid coast Maine, the objective of the Courtesy Boat Inspections is not only to watch for particles of plants on boats and trailers, but to keep the need for self-inspection in the forefront of every boater’s routine when launching and pulling their boat.
