Is it safe to turn a vessel, 180 degrees with personal watercraft traffic during the busy summer months? If this is safe, how?

Yes.  Per navigational rules, a smaller vessel shall not impede the passage of a vessel which can safely navigate only within a narrow channel or fairway. Under present conditions, large freight vessels and recreational traffic co-exist in the Ship Channel, including in the location proposed for turning basin, and this should not changed under the proposed vessel operations.
