      Nice, Jo. Way to make visitors feel welcome.

      The boat is regularly inspected by the Coast Guard and we’d welcome an inspection. We have an outboard, so there is nothing in our bilge but river water. So we are putting your river water back in the river, pollutants included.

      Perhaps more to the point, we are doing our best to highlight stories of chemical and organic pollutants in the water and efforts to clean up the river.
