Question Loto

Have the Noise Nazi's backed down at the Lake? Just curious...don't mind their presence as they are there for safety. But, the whole noise issue really seems ludicrous.

No let down, actually water patrol just brought on 10 new patrolmen and have asked the coast guard to assist. traffic has gotten bad, cruisers are killing the boating environment. stay out of the coves and in the channel, try to run in groups and avoid them in the no wake zone to the party cove. run on 1 engine thru it. I know guys who are spending 3-6k on muffler systems to comply. no muffler has yet reached 90db's on a motor 850hp or higher, the turn downs work at idle but they can ticket you running if they think you are too loud. they still escort you off the lake or to your dock after the first offense, which can ruin a weekend fast. they have also just bought new center console twin outboard patrol boats. I heard 5 new ones.

BTW,
I do know of a 40' Skater that got several noise tickets in one day. No arrest, no boat impound, just more tickets.

No, but there may (or may not) have been another incident involving the Skaters owner and the WP.

Sounds like I better get some turn downs on mine before I come down for the shootout. Don't need to travel all that way to end up back on the trailer

I think I will try those snuffler things that Troutly has on his boat. I think I can pass with those on. I have a DB meter so I will test mine this weekend. It is 90 Db at 1 meter back and up if memory serves me correctly ??
