NO!

215 No, 41 yes.

I hate to say it guys, but speed limits are coming. It might be 1 year or 10 years down the line, but I believe they will come.

I believe we're all currently in our hayday on speed. I don't know how many people I have told over the last couple years but all its going to take is for one 'Cigarette' boat to be running and a fuking lake lice pulls in front of him and gets killed. Even if it's the personnal watercrafts fault, if the driver of the performance boat says '...I was going too fast to turn...' we're screwed!

With the popularity of these personnel watercraft and inexperianced PW operators now, the above senario is just a matter of time.

Ask yourself how many times did you hear the term 'noise regulations' 10 years ago with regards to boating?

For what it's worth - Just my 2 cents
