Summer is starting. Boaters can enjoy the open waters of Long Island Sound or navigate the Housatonic River. They can troll for fish on ponds. They can motor a pontoon boat or use a personal watercraft around a lake.
They also can avoid waiting in line at a state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office. By going now to get a new registration or any needed assistance for a renewal, boat owners can avoid the traditional pre-July Fourth rush to have vessels ready for the summer season.
