    There is a new law about operating motor boats in the vicinity of the thousand islands, especially near the islands themselves. The purpose of the law is to reduce accidental collisions of boats moving out of marinas into the main waer ways and to reduce wave erosion on the shore line.
    The pertinent part of the law reads as follows:
    "S 102. Rules governing the operation of motor boats. The following
    rules for the operation of motor boats within such zone are hereby
    established: 1. No motor boat shall be operated within a harbor line at
    a speed exceeding five miles per hour. The waters of the Saint Lawrence
    river lying southerly of Wells Island and northwesterly of a line drawn
    from the easterly tip of Wells Island beginning at a point known as "The
    Chalet" and easterly and southerly of Saint Elmo Island and continuing
    southerly of Dewey Island, NOBBY ISLAND, and, terminating at the
    steamship dock, southerly of a point known as "Hope Well Hall"; and the
    waters of the Saint Lawrence river lying northerly of the mainland of
    the town of Alexandria, Jefferson county, New York, and southerly of a
    line drawn from the point of land beginning on the mainland known as
    Bonne Castle and northerly of Squaw Island to the southwesterly part of
    Cuba Island, shall constitute harbors for all the purposes mentioned in
    this article.
    2. Every person operating a motor boat shall at all times operate the
    same in a careful and prudent manner and at such a rate of speed as not
    to endanger the property of another or the life or limb of any person."
