Boat Inspections

TPPA supports the Courtesy Boat Inspection Program at Milton Town Beach, New Bridge Marina and Jellystone Campground. This voluntary program takes only a few minutes and helps to keep the Ponds clean by stopping the unnecessary spread of invasive plants and animals. So, please cooperate.

DEP’s invasive aquatic biologist John McPhedran demonstrates how to do a thorough boat inspection in under 3.5 minutes.

Developed for Maine’s Courtesy Boat Inspection Program inspectors, this 8 minute video discusses the importance of protecting our lakes and shows how to interact with boaters while walking them through an inspection of their boat.
