FH, you're right, you should not have. Being a hot-head is not going to help a bit.

So what about people with property on the main channel? Are their docks not important enough to restrict wakes?

If you are swimming in a cove and struck by a 25 foot boat on plane, does it hurt less?

Are wakes caused by a big bowrider pulling skiers or tubers in a confined cove less damaging than a 30 foot boat with a similar hull?

etc etc etc.

This is a poorly designed bill made either by mis-guided do-gooders, or people with an agenda. Either way it needs to be stopped. And being hot-headed is not going to stop it.

You're so angry, that you are not reading well. The proposed law is for boats 26 feet and longer, not longer than 26 feet.

Doesn't someone make a 25 foot cruiser?

Yea, but the one I found was a Bayliner it's not going to be heavy enough to put out as much of a wake as a SeaDoo!!

I was upset at the law and that he didn't address the weight of boat's!!!

FunHome,
I am with you, the length designation is a stupid determination at best. The people in my cove that cause wakes near my dock and come close to people swimming are fishing boats, jet skis, and ski boats at the mouth of the cove, none of which are over 25 feet.
I knew when I bought my lake house that it would be rough at times. How rough it would get was factored in on the different areas I would consider.
This poorly designed law is intended for a few boaters that have no consideration for others property or personal safety. Any more it seems that this country is being run by special interest groups or the vocal minority that want more and more rules.
I DONT!!!

By the way I received the same can response as FunHome to an e-mail I addressed to Paul Kennedy of the MO State Water Patrol. I asked him some very specific questions regarding the decision to base it on length of boat and he did not address anything other than he canned answers.
I really don't like when you take the time to voice your concern and they don't even bother reading what you send.

Here is an example of what they did at grand lake. The water level went up about 2 feet after they were done installing 500 lane buoys.

You need to talk to your Mo state Rep or Wayne Cooper from Camdenton. THe water Patrol enforces the law, Cooper has sponsored the bill.

You are not focusing your efforts toward the right group of people.

the part that worries me is by the time these wonderfull lawmakers get done it wont look anything like its being proposed today.
400 ft. wide will be 800 ft. and 26 ft. will be 18 ft.
