May 2014 represents the initial Parker Strip “sticker” numbers - since the focus of the campaign is on California RV Parks and Campgrounds, we expect the high percentage of boaters to have CA plates.

Starting June 1, we will be recording boat registration numbers, rather than trailer license plate numbers.

Interesting Fact: the LHMA “Sticker A Mussel” program has now “stickered” nearly 5,800 boats/trailers. If you were to line up these boats/trailers in a single line, end-to-end on the highway, they would stretch approximately 45 miles.

Trending: : Record 2014 Memorial weekend for Lake Havasu boat launches reported. Low water conditions and tighter mussel restrictions at California and Arizona lakes appear to be attracting more boaters to lower Colorado River boating destinations. 58% of all boaters had California plates, 10-12% higher than any of the previous 14 months recorded.

 

Service shops, boat dealerships, marinas, launch ramps and boat manufacturers in Havasu and Parker are now operating at near or full capacity as summer boating is in full swing. Service shops, dealerships and boat manufacturers are reporting that demand from boat owners for ‘local' (Havasu & Parker) boat storage is definitely on the rise as boaters find the lower Colorado River their best and most convenient recreational boating source due to low water level lakes throughout the Southwest.


Non-contaminated lakes and rivers are beginning to take notice that ‘wakesports boats' (especially with ballast systems) pose heighten AIS risk, primarily because bladders cannot be effectively emptied or decontaminated. Some private lakes are also requiring bladders to be sealed and not functional. Destruction/damage of docks and shoreline due to excessively large wakes also cited as a problem.

OUI arrests appear to be trending down so far in 2014 on Lake Havasu. More boaters seem to be conforming to the “Designated Operator” philosophy of at least one sober boat operator onboard at all times started by the LHMA several years ago.
