Who's been charged and where?
explain what happened at time of questioning, or were you just nailed outright
your opinions/thoughts on the subject
I have never heard of anyone getting busted in Toronto harbour. Guy behind me in the marina has a 22 donzi with a 496 and no mufflers, he never has been stopped.
Boats without mufflers installed and connected are not permitted within 5 miles of shore (updated Mar/03). Engine blowers must be operated for at least 4 minutes before starting a gas engine - proper fuelling procedures are now mandatory
trust me I can squirt louder than our twin using silent choice , just interested on how stict this apparent law is being inforced
I've been stopped several times on Lake Ontario .
Just for a safety inspection . The noise was never mentioned . Only " How fast does it go ? How much does it cost to fill up ? " Twice on Georgian Bay . Pretty much the same thing . Then there was a time late one evening on the Niagara River I was heading back to my Marina .
I think but I can't be sure . There might have been some blue flashing lights on a boat behind me . But it must have been a really slow boat because he just kept falling further and further behind . I have no idea why . I figure after answered a few Officers questions they could just tell the other guys . My TG is fairly loud .
When it's switched off through hall Kragar you can hear frogs fart 3miles inshore so I doubt we'll have any issues
Was pulled over 2 yrs ago in the Bobcaygeon/Fenlon Falls area.....they did a hard 180, came after me and wanted me BAD!!!.....when they pulled up it was ALL about alcohol....def #1 concern with them....I /we were fine, no problem.... then after scolding us for not wearing life jackets at 35mph we were on our way.....no mention at all about noise....I have si choice...was in quiet when they pulled up....seen the same pair of cops one more time that year and twice last year, they're parked and I drive right by, pipes open, they just wave.
Im at Orillia/Big Chief/Lagoon City just as much.....lots of loud boats....So far never have had/seen a problem there either...
