[(b)  On water bodies of 10,000 acres or less, a volume of water 20 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 3 feet deep as measured at normal high water mark and located adjacent to a structure to which a watercraft may be secured.]

2  Seasonal Docks.  Amend RSA 482-A:3, IV-a(e) to read as follows:

(e)  No more than 6 feet wide and no more than [40] 50 feet long if the water body is 1,000 acres or larger, or no more than [30] 40 feet long if the water body is less than 1,000 acres;
