NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Many people consider Memorial Day to also be the unofficial start to summer. Several people were out on the docks at the Oxbo Marina in Northampton Monday.

Brian Scott of Chicopee told 22News Monday was the perfect weather to start prepping for the boating season. “This is all about getting our boating season started. We’re going to take it out and beach it. We got to do some cleaning on it and then we’re going to go out in the lagoon and sit back and relax.”

If you’re heading out on the water this summer, remember to stay safe. State law says there must be a life jacket for every person on board and children 12 and under must wear them at all times.
