Lifting Ban a Life Raft for Boating Industry

(New Buffalo, MI) - The state of Michigan allowing motorboats back in the water may have kept communities along Lake Michigan free of tumbleweeds and the boating industry from capsizing.


Bob Stratton is the owner of Service 1 Marine at the state line. He says that allowing the use of boats during the COVID-19 crisis was like throwing a life raft to his business and the city of New Buffalo threatened severely had the ban dragged on all season.


Stratton since the decision Friday has already started ripping shrink wrap off luxury boats in his storage yard to start getting them ready to hit the water.
