Statement as of 8:59 AM EDT on May 26, 2005


... Please join the National Weather Service in observing National
safe boating week... may 21st through may 27th...

When Spring and Summer roll around and boating activity increases,
the frequency of thunderstorms and other weather hazards increase.
Too often boaters are caught off guard by fast moving weather
systems. Having knowledge of the large weather picture and knowing
exactly what to do when sudden storms appear could help you enjoy a
safe and more pleasant journey.

Fortunately, people on boats equipped with NOAA Weather Radio will
be able to tune into the special marine warnings and weather
statements being issued by the National Weather Service. These
statements will give you instructions on where the storms are
heading and how severe they are expected to become.

When out on the water, tune frequently to NOAA Weather Radio, the
official voice of the National Weather Service, for the latest
forecast and warnings throughout the boating season.

You can listen to NOAA Weather Radio on the following frequencies in
Maine and new hampshire:

Kdo95 162.550 mhz Blackstrap Hill Falmouth ME
