Boaters crowd McKinley Marina
MILWAUKEE -- CBS 58 News spent the afternoon of July 4th with lake patrol off Milwaukee's McKinley Marina.
Donald Vogel brought his homemade penguin sailboat to the marina today expecting it to be busy. He didn't expect to be stranded.
Petty Officer Joseph Jenkins says he's surprised there have been so few incidents given the number of boats on the water.
"People are being safe," Jenkins observed, "They're wearing their life jackets when the need to and just really doing a good job of being safe. We appreciate that."
But the Coast Guard is reminding parents that children under 13 need to have those life jackets on the whole time.
