They really canít write you up for speeding because there is no speed limit because you are not in a permitted event.
I'm going to AZZ all over the lake!!!!

WTF are you talking about. People will run as fast as they want and if water patrol wants to give a bogus ticket most guys will happily fight it with the same open check book that they use to maintain their boat.

Last I checked we still have the right to assemble in this country and go for a boat ride on a Friday morning.

Oh yeah, welcome to the site..
