When rocks suddenly appear due to changes in Lake Havasu water levels, who is responsible for installing and maintaining hazard warning buoys? If it’s on the California side of the Lake, no one!

To the rescue - the Lake Havasu Marine Association, an all-volunteer 501 c3 non-profit organization, that’s who! Check out our buoy crew as they hoist a brand new "rock hazard buoy" into place in California Cove. With lake water levels high during summer and plenty of wave action, rock piles are well concealed from a boater’s view.

Thanks to Steve at Arizona State Parks for his help, we were able to have a new rock hazard buoy in place within 10 days from getting a call from Ed Martel a long-time Havasu boater. Ed’s story wasn’t pretty. While out wakeboarding with his grandson, Ed’s wakesports boat collided with the nearly invisible rock pile, causing severe and expensive damage to the hull and underwater gear. Fortunately, no one was injured.

Ed did the right thing…notifying us as soon as possible, and he wants everyone to be looking out for and avoiding “Ed’s Rock” which is now marked.

Note: A new buoy, chain, turnbuckle and 150-pound anchor retails for close to $500. Proceeds from our annual boat show and membership dues are our only source of revenue. We have over 40 buoys on Lake Havasu and Topock Gorge to maintain.

Please help us keep our waterways safe. A contribution of $25 or more will help us do that.
