Ray , what exactly are the boundaries ( Distances , Markers/Buoys ) for Kayaks/personal watercraft ? Is it they self explanatory ? I would like to paddle out there this summer . Thanks Stephen .

Hello everyone,

I attended the Harbor Ops meeting today and learned a few SUP paddlers launching 
from LIberty State Park ended up on LIberty Island.  They were picked up and 
written a citation for breach of the security zone and for not having a PFD's.

Please be diligent around security zones and for SUP paddlers - wear or at least 
bring your pfd.  SUP's have been recently classified as a vessel by USCG and you 
need a PFD on board.
