Question Innocent or Guilty?

on my recent trip to havasu i got in a little trouble with the locals.

put the boat in and headed down the river under the bridge past the beaches to what i thought was the end of the no wake zone. wrongggggg

aproxiamatly 500 yards away from these well marked buoys were a second set of no wake buoys that i didnt see untill it was to late. by the tiime i noticed them and shut down the man was waving me over. he informed me that if i had read the first set of buoys i would have known not to get on plane till i got past the second set. i realize ignorance of the law is no defense but they could have maintained the buoys better if they are truely concerned for safety.

whada you guys think?

I think that is irrefutable proof that the Buoys are in fact marked..with everything but the meaning of the Buoy. I also think your pictures are enough to have the ticket dropped. They look like advertisement, not navigational tools.

WTF is up with that! Those aren't buoys they're billboards. If they are worried about safety, and they should be, they would maintain those things. They should be ashamed of themselves for writing a ticket on that!
