Jun 01, 2004 — With Memorial Day behind us, the boating season on the St. Lawrence River is gearing up. Locals, seasonal residents, and tourists will launch their skiffs and pleasure crafts for days of fun and sun on the water. And the annual Alexandria Bay Poker Run at the end of June will attract thousands of eager power boaters. Some boaters may not be familiar with the rules of the river. In preparation, state park police are posting speed limit signs in the American Narrows between Clayton and Alexandria Bay. Last summer David Sommerstein reported on conflicts over speed and noise on the river.
