I registered under the name: "N'dour Mofoka",
I have already received 4 e-mails from these commies, directing me to the appropriate ".gov" sites, to join up with some bucks for the cause!!!
This guy signs his msg with: : Peace and quiet"!!!!!!!
I will try to post these e-mails!
signing off for now..........(they are probably tracking my communications to the other side)!

We already have a law in effect here in Ohio, and it really sucks major ass... they can only give you a ticket if they have a decibel meter with them, but I was told there are only 2 in the state and they are usually at there office, so they pull you over and board your boat just to f- with you..

I know what you are talkin about Monke. I was pulled over 4 times last summer so they could "look at my documentation". On the Friday before Labor Day...they searched my boat "for contraband" as I was leavin the dock, and again as I pulled into south bass island the coast guard slowed me down and once again questioned me. It was after dark, and I think they were checking to make sure I was sober. Overall they have been pretty cool about things and have never even mentioned the noise, but when when they spent the 30 min looking through my bags, and lookin under all the cushions for the "contraband" I felt this was more than a little intrusive. Offshore boats are definitely gettin there attention though.
See you on the lake soon,
Scott

Absolutely Hilarious. If they attack the water then they better attack the highway. I wonder what the difference is between a boat and a Harley. Perhaps a boat and a lawnmower. I have a good friend that challenged the system in our area. He went and got "comparatives" and basically ended the dispute. If you think about it, how loud is a chainsaw or perhaps a sportbike, or even a Plane. The things that people take for granted are never questioned. Only the Luxary items seem to be under the gun. "Some drivers have to wear ear plugs" , yeah in the manual for my Johndeere pushmower they recommend ear plugs AND safety glasses. May blowboaters all over the country miss happy hour by 2 minutes.

Deal with the Save the Manatee Club, the ultimate in futility, lies, and the most bullsh*t propoganda you will EVER encounter. All you can do is FIGHT BACK HARD AND LOUD and try to come up with a way to hurt them financially.

Ever notice how the states with the most guns and least restrictive gun laws ALWAYS have the least crime. Hmmm I wonder why that is?????????

Like I always say .... Give me a piece and I'll be quiet.


But seriously these people have wayyyyyyyy too much time on their hands. If they want to help I agree with Speed2Lead there are many other way more important things that their efforts and resources could be used for.

It's too bad their attention can't be redirected to the noise those stupid import cars make with the 1 inch inlet 5 inch outlet mufflers.
