I think the patrol on LOTO is far worse than GRDA ever has been. You really have to be a standout to get hassled these days.
We must be running into different GRDA. I'm a little nervous about LOTO this year, the Cig hit 94 on DB meter idling when it was placed in the cockpit. Those 350s rumble with the CMIs.

LOTO doesn't read decibles in the cockpit, they read them at the transom. If you are running make sure you are in a group of boats where they can't single you out. I agree with BL GRDA has been more lax the last couple of years. There is a new female GRDA that would apear to have something to prove though

We will be in OK this year but not at Grand. We will be with Gordo at Skiatook. I believe our group is wanting to come visit Grand at least once this year though.

Thats what I was afraid of. According to www.mswp.state.mo.us/ boats older then 96 have to be under 86 DB at 50 feet. I should clear that, but if they give me a transom reading, I'm screwed.

A motorboat’s engine must have a factory-installed muffler
or exhaust water manifold for noise reduction or another
effective muffling system.
• In waters of the Mississippi River, Missouri River, and
lakes with a shoreline in excess of 160 miles:
• Motorboats built January 1, 1996, or later must not
exceed a noise level of 90 dBA when at idle speed and
measured from a distance of 3 feet.
• All must not exceed a noise level of 86 dBA when
measured from a distance of 50 feet.
• You may not remove or modify a muffler or muffling
system if the result is increased noise level.
• If the exhaust system uses water for muffling, it must
comply with the noise level restrictions.
under sail alone.

Nick: I was always scared to try LOTO with the 28. You might have a chance though, with the age of the hull. It does sound bad as hell.

Man, you guys have got some sweet boats. Makes my old Formula look - well old. I'm having transmission problems on my 357 and may end up out there in my dad's (really, really old) '83 272 Formula. He keeps it on the lake so if mine is not finished then I'll be forced to use "old blue". I hope to meet some of you out there.

It's OK to take Well Adjusted just take pictures. Sorry no pics on Ward's computer. Just listen for the golden oldies that 42MTI is playing. I'll be in Topeka smelling burnt rubber. First Memorial Day to miss in 20 years.

Default Duck Creek News

I talked to the GRDA on Saturday after noticing about 250 buoys absent from Duck Creek. Apparently the no wake rules are changing. If your boat is trailer-able you can cruise in and out of the cove at 30 MPH staying as close as you can to the center line of buoys. He didn't define "trailer-able" but told me I was good to go. Good news!

Isn't ALL the boats on Grand trailerable. How else did they end up on Grand.
