If the local law enforcement agency has a hard-on for you, usually based on the majority opinion of the other boaters and/or the residents of the lake, you can still be "right" and lose. You can fight, or you can go where you won't be hassled.
Also, I'm not a big fan of big boats on little water. A large, fast, slow-to-maneuver boat sharing the waterways with bass boats, jet boats, jetskis& such is usually a recipe for disaster. I can understand a guy that lives in Kansas or Oklahoma not wanting to commute to the ocean every weekend, but that's not so tough for a guy an hour away.
But it's your boating season. If you want to spend it getting hassled...
I was on Harris Saturday until about noon. Then the rains came. Spent the night at Inn on the Green then came home. Weather was spotty. Boat ran 91 WOT.
I am gonna see how this plays out.....
The "officers" were having a hard time with another boater so they kinda of just dropped me-and went on to the other boat-almost like they lost interest......and I quickly loaded up and drove away!
The lake is a BIG lake.
I wonder if they will send you a ticket in the mail.
Depending on state laws, you could be responsible for the damage your wake caused. Now they need to prove it was your wake that caused the damage. Unless they have some good evidence like you buzzing their dock within 20' and have your wake on camera as it rolled in and hit their dock, it is very hard to prove. I bet the whole thing will go away, but if it doesn't I would ask for evidence.
(however if you did buzz someone you deserve to get harassed)
Did you take pictures of your boat and of the broken dock?
Peace & grace be to this place.
........ God bless the troops, always! :)
