HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -
There’s a new Coast Guard Chief in town. Eli Paquette came on board recently and has an agenda for boaters, water skiers and others on the water. He stresses there are three different subjects that he wants to push. Paquette says you should have a designated driver. Another problem is the number of life jackets on board and their sizes. He says many people don't have the proper number or maybe a young child and no jacket to fit them. Paquette also says that people buy a boat but don't know the rules of the road on the water and that everyone can use a little more education about safety on the water.
