I have been to Lake Cumberland a couple of times for their poker run in the fall. Trust me there are some pretty loud boats that show up for this, last year we had over two hundred boats, most running over 90mph, many over 100, a few approaching 150. There was never any discussion of noise laws.

Try and contact Jamestown marina or the Lake Cumberland state park, I am sure they both have websites with contact info.

The attached is from last year's run. I have a 27 Formula with a 500EFI and striaght through exhaust, no problem. And I was one of the quieter ones.

According to the April 2002 issue of Powerboat, there is not a noise law in Kentucky.

Never seen or had any problems with noise. Just open and "in-sight" beer cans. Dry County. Pour your beer in a plastic cup= no problem. Still doing the family houseboat get together I take it.

Travis,

Cumberland is where I boat. Unless things change for this year you will not have a problem with a noise issue. Many loud boats, some with dry exhaust and so far no problems. Just keep the beer down and out of site or in a cup and be senseable and you will not have any problems. You should enjoy 76 Falls on Sat. and out in front of the dam late Sat. afternoon 5:30 to 6:00ish.

Be safe & see you there!
Mark

yep...no noise laws in ky

khadley you must have been on the tennesse side of dale hollow to get a ticket like that. my family is from burksville and i have been going to dale hollow for 35 years and only been "pulled over" once because my stern light was flickering at about 60mph. they even chased me all the way from horse creek to sulpher creek he he still didn't get a ticket just told to slow down so it wouldn't flicker.
