Default 2nd offense

I am not sure, but I have a customer that tells me that he got one ticket, (I dont know the cost)and the next time they talked to him they told him that if he did not fix it he would be banned for loto. Untill it was fixed.

And WM is right the wp at loto have though hull exhaust. The funniest part is that they do not clear the limit. And that comes from one of the oficers that is a friend of mine.

The Ohio law says that you are exempt from exhaust laws if you use your boat for racing.

So buy a couple of stickers from a local race organization an slap them on your boat

But seriously I know a couple of guys here on the great lakes that use their race boats for pleasure all the time. So how could Johnny Law Man prove that you do not race your boat? or have intentions of it.

NY state is lower with 90db max @ dock and 70 db from shore. NY also has a provision that says no bypass or cut-outs are allowed. So basically anyone in New York using captain's choice,etc. are all illegal. i believe Corsa has a section on their website that has sound reg's from state-state.

One place to start is to investigate who pulled you over. I know in NY a couple of years ago the Park Police were doing DB testing and it came out later that they weren't even qualified to operate the equipment. I hope that whatever kind of cop that wrote you up was properly trained to administer the test. Good luck!
