Default Longest 'No Wake / Headway Speed' Zone . . .

Who is dealing ( on a relatively daily basis ) with the longest 'No Wake / Headway Speed' zone ?

Every time I take my boat out, I have approx 20 minutes of 5 mph. The benefit is that I have the entire Pacific Ocean to play in once I get there.

There must be worse. . . or is there ?

Wait until they put speed zone on ocean because of sleeping whales.

I can remember years ago it seemed like an eternity to get from the backyard dock of my sister in law's house in ft Myers out to the gulf.... all wakeless for about 2 hrs.

Honest to God, Newport should have a 'Diamond Lane', buoyed-off down the center for boats that just want to get 'outside'. Maybe 10-15 mph ( except the ferry crossing ).

Ban the kayakers, sailboats, windsurfers, etc.

They should make a cut through the peninsula.

At least it is a sceneic(sp) cruise ... nice yachts, homes, hills, ferry, ferriswheel .... it could be worse

Going out tomorrow morning around 9:30
