The accompanying Boating Under the Influence Guide illustrates just how dangerous drinking and boating can be and provides some helpful tips to avoid a BUI arrest. Boating may be primarily a leisure activity for you, but that doesn’t mean you should be any less careful when it comes to alcohol consumption. Know the law and the risks, and you may save lives.

RIVER ROAD — Firefighters from seven fire companies battled a fire that broke out in the century-old Clark Thread Mill building, across the street from Norwest Marine, Wednesday afternoon and continued into the late evening.
The blaze started at about 4 p.m. in a silkscreen print shop, Emulsion Printhouse, in a small section of the third floor of the mill.
There were no reported injuries resulting from the fire, and no boats were damaged while crews accessed water from the river through the boatyard.
Norwest is currently undergoing a complete WiFi renovation. Our all new, long-range WiFi projection panel is being installed for speed and reliability. Dockage guests should expect up to 85 times previous loading speeds.
Expected completion as early as next week, Norwest boaters will experience first class WiFi to surf the web, check emails, and stream video services such as Netflix and YouTube.
At Norwest we appreciate your patronage and we are always looking at other ways we can make your boating experience even better.
