Be aware, Operation dry water! in Open Lake Discussion Posted June 29, 2009 I've seen a bunch of stupid stuff from drunken boaters out here on lake champlain. They should be on the water checking. It's not a real inconvenience, you stop they make sure you are not drunk and youâ€™re on your way again in about a minute or two. Cops are out to make our lives safer not to harass us.
