There was a restriction. Around the Desert Storm poker run they dropped the restriction with no specific date of reinstatement. Who knows when it will change. The city tends to change laws quickly and without too much thought, rather than really thinking it out for the best solutions. For example, the closure of some of the beach to lessen the traffic . . . FAILURE.

Presently, the size limit is "supposed" to be 36' in the channel.

That's what I thought. Is there a site that would give us information regarding the restrictions?

No just a sign at the entrance to the channel, when it's not being enforced the sign is folded over. That was one of the reasons for me looking for a 35' playboy as opposed to a gun

I've never seen them enforce it or heard of it being enforced. There is always bigger boats than 36' in the channel. Tha doesn't mean they won't bother you but I've never seen it happen.

The restriction was lifted during the Desert Storm poker run until Memorial day weekend. It was put back into effect at that time. From what I've heard this was a sign that they would be changing it soon to enforce keeping house boats out of the channel. The law was made to keep house boats from coming through the channel, not to restrict large performance boats. We'll see what unfolds. Theres always some type of drama to make it more difficult on performance boaters there. Main marina launch ramp ring a bell!? the people that run that town need to pull their heads out their a$$es and realize how much money the performance boating community brings them!

Oh, they enforce it! We were booted out last season. We were running through in a Tiger and a Top Gun

I was out there for the first time this year for the poker run and had one ---- of a good time and did not see a problem my self the channel got packed at times but all handled it well. We are all americans and have the right to do most anything. But every year it gets worse and worse, who starts the BS any way. We must all stick together and fight the problem's . And how do these laws get passed with out anyone knowing. In up state N.Y. the law is trying to make the noise law stick and say switchables are illeagle , they are factory , If there is a problem go to the manufacture and fix the problem not the consumer.
