Do The Math.. ,maybe something like this...
Dear Ed, in responce to the article dated-____________ by _________, I would like to bring to your attention the following facts concerning boating on Lake Wini.
1) Large "cruiser" type boats create much larger damaging wakes than "offshore" boats do.
2)The speed at which a performance boat travels has nothing to do with safety on the lake if ALL boaters obey the rules of the water.
3) Nothing in Maritime law states that one type of boat is the "wrong" type and all other types as the "right" type of boat for use on a lake.
In closing, I offer to you and the author of the aforementioned article the opportunity to travel the lake with me on an "offshore" boat so that you may understand and properly present by way of a truthful article, the FACTS and not heresay and unsubstantiated innuendo to your readership.
