Hardly close on point. Everybody has NWZ close to shore, swim areas, etc etc. The point of the discussion was "Boat to Boat" an d the difficulty of enforcing it. Not that we expect MP to be stopping everybody who is a violator, but based on folks experience in other states. Unless I misread them, the quotes of various laws were not on point re: boat to boat.
