Obstructing or Impeding Navigation
Vessel operators should always be considerate of other vessel operators, even when stopping to anchor or moor. Keep in mind that it is illegal to:
- Anchor a vessel in the traveled portion of a river or channel in a way that will prevent or interfere with any other vessel passing through the same area.
- Moor or attach a vessel to a buoy (other than a mooring buoy), beacon, light, or any other navigational aid placed on public waters by proper authorities.
- Move, displace, tamper with, damage, or destroy any navigational aid.
- Obstruct a pier, wharf, boat ramp, or access to any facility.
- Mark or obstruct any state waters in a way that endangers the operation of watercraft or conflicts with the MSHP marking system.
- Operate or otherwise position a vessel, other object, or any person in a way that obstructs or impedes the normal flow of traffic on the lakes of this state.
