Drought means boaters must be careful
SUNAPEE - State police are advising New Hampshire boaters to be cautious.
Police say that drought is lowering water depths - and that means more chances to get stuck, The Valley News reported.
On Thursday, the excursion vessel, the MV Mt. Sunapee, was grounded in 4 feet of water about 300 feet from shore, on top of the pipes that feed Mount Sunapee Resort's snow-making system. According to New Hampshire Fish and Game's depth maps, that area is usually about 20 feet deep.
A grounding was also reported on Lake Winnipesaukee, when the Sophie C ran aground near Look Island.
