Divers find NH rock hazard below surface of Lake Winnipesaukee

The Associated Press

GILFORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Marine Patrol says divers surveying part of the state's largest lake have found a potentially hazardous rock about 8 feet below the surface.

The Laconia Citizen reports the survey of the shallow channel between Eagle and Governors Island near Gilford on Lake Winnipesaukee was performed to identify possible hazards that low-water levels may create for the M/S Mount Washington tourist boat.

Capt. Jim Morash told the Marine Patrol a rock was found below the surface within the navigable channel for the boat.

Officials say the depth of the rock doesn't pose a problem for traditional recreational boats operating on the lake. They say a black-topped buoy will remain until water levels return to seasonal levels or after the final cruise of the year next month.
