4 feet up from water line and 4 feet back from transom.
I caught one local trying to hold it up with his boat sitting horizontal to my transom. I pulled out the book and read it outloud to him.
He started saying this or that and I showed him the state manual.
He then proceeded to write a warning and then said 'have a nice day' why pushing away from me.
No one likes being told how to do thier job, especially law enforcement. But they also should know the rules of thier duties also.
Just be lucky that you are 'allowed' to have switchable exhaust, we here in MN and WI are not so lucky
