i can see water patrol wasting there time driving around with tape measures checking docks, slips, overhangs.... good use of resources.
I've never been up there, so excuse my ignorance:

Do you even need a 30 footer on that lake? Meaning, does it ever get that rough? All the pictures I've seen from there makes it look pretty protected.

without a displacement limitation this does next to nothing there are already to many 50 plus and under 60 that tear it up. At least its a start. The writing is on the wall and the next to be addressed will be a day time speed limit, its happening every were.

A 30' boat is just a toy in the main channel on most weekends...especially the holiday weekends.

It is a blast. Lots of places to go to by water. The big cruiser wakes bouncing off the cliff walls and sea walls makes it one big washing machine on weekends.
