Blue's good but tough to swing weekly on my salary. Most of my $$ goes to the local gas station. I firmly believe I pay their rent.

I want to be an assemblyman, you can get anything passed. No one votes How does a bill get passed that only 7 people vote one?

I looked into this a bit myself recently. It is definitely a threat to performance boats, and yet another sad testimony to the continued erosion of individual freedom in the name of not offending anyone.

Interesting to note, under the bill it appears that the inland measurement procedure is altered from a higher-dB limit WOT at something like 50' to a lower dB limit idling close-by, probably to make testing more feasible. The easiest solution to this seems to be that a silent choice type of exhaust can probably meet the standard at idle while retaining full performance under load.

What I see as a bigger obstacle in the bill is the introduction of a coastal noise limit. This would be virtually impossible to comply with in any performance boat actually being used. The only promise I can see here is that it would be equally difficult to enforce.
