Entering a navigable body of water from the upland, and navigating from the point of access to distant points on the same body of water or points on connecting bodies of water, are, for practical purposes, a continua­tion of the same act. Yet they involve significantly different legal concepts and raise significantly different issues. The problems resulting from inter­ference with a riparian owner's right of access to and from his upland are examined in Part I of this article; those involving his right to travel once he has obtained access are the subject of Part II.
