    This was a good move – I hope. Now it will be up to the DEC to implement. However if inspection stations are not available when boaters need them, or too far to travel, or make it unreasonably difficult to comply it will be a problem. Lake George has done a great job but it took a learning curve and there is considerable expense. I surmise that will be the story in the Adirondacks. Thank you Paul Smith’s for your program. Recreational boaters no longer have an excuse, and I believe the majority of them appreciate clean waters.
