Water sports enthusiasts encouraged to stay safe in high waters


LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - With water levels very high, it's important for water sports enthusiasts to think about safety first, according to a boat dealer in La Crosse.

If you're boating and see a twig nearby, it can have an "iceberg" affect. That means there could be more debris underneath your boat, leading to possible damage.

"Be aware of the weeds in the water for the cooling of the motors. There's logs floating about, there's buoys, navigation buoys that are hidden... there's logs underneath the twigs. Be aware of floating objects," said Dave Tucker, owner of Power House Marine.

Despite high water, Tucker said Power House Marine has delivered roughly 10 boats per weeks since May.

He said high water doesn't scare off area boaters.
