Marinas allowed to open

Marinas in Vermont are allowed to open as part of state's gradual reopening amid the coronavirus so that boaters can get out onto Lake Champlain and other waterway.

Mark Saba, owner of Bay Harbor Marina in Mallets Bay, told mynbc5 that normally the marina would have been open the third week of April. He estimated that the marina put 50 boats in the water Thursday, compared to what would have been around 20 in other years.
