Don't they have anything better to do with their time - or your money?

Entrapment. Would never hold up in court -- if you wanted to spend the money to fight it

I assume the boat has mufflers and is below 90db!

No I do not believe they are done driving every last bit of economy out of Grand Haven. The Sheriff has seemed to be a little more laxed compared to last year, but a lot of the damage was done last summer.

they just like to hassle everyone in Grand haven

I was pulled over last weekend ( first and only time in hanky panky this year ) because I had no MC numbers. they knew dang well it was going to be coast gard documented and I had all the documentation to prove it
at least they didn't check my dB. with my silent thunder it is supposedly 92dB as told by teh previous owner ??? I have never checked

The state of Western Michigan's economy is of no concern to the Sheriff's Deputies. They are under a very deliberate directive from the Ottawa County Sheriff to put and end to the loud offshore boats, and the loud partying. This has come from the local home owners associations who have put pressure on the department. This is just a fact, though many would agree its like moving next to a train tracks, and then *****ing about the train. The "lifestyle" that has been enjoyed out in Holland, Sausage, and GH, I can remember back thirty years ago when I was a kid with my parents and their friends. The people that now occupy the zillion dollar houses, just want to enjoy their quiet lake home. The fun as we once new it is over for good I hate to say. No more fully nude Girls Gone Wild contests.

Boat is a WEMET Enforcement seizure from the 57th. I can't go into too much detail, but at this time there is no intention of using the vessal for Marine Enforcement.
