A large part of their (MP) job is to promote safety and keep everybody happy on the lakes. That's one reason why for so many years they were unarmed. Game wardens/conservation officers have the same sense of direction and I applaud that. Since the 150' rule, boat to boat, is unique, playing someplace else (Boston Harbor, Narragansett Bay, etc) gives a different`perspective to those who mostly boat close to crowded areas of Wiinipesaukee. To me, the 150' rule B to B should be almost a common courtesy anywhere that conditions make it reasonable. Emphasis on conditions as with Coast Guard Rule 6.
