It's not all just the Volvo type yuppies. There are also some old fartz that remember the 50's and want to go back to those days. I was there in the 50's (as a kid) and it was great except they didn't have any "offshore" boats. Of course aren't all boats "offshores"...if they weren't they would be "planters" on your front lawn

As far as the volvo types where do you think they come from ..They aint locals
The real locals like their infernal combustion powered vehicles..
Its the over zealous self appointed tree huggers... Who just happen to be from MA
We could argue both views all day long,but I would rather band with my fellow OSO members and fight against the new proposed speed limits.

These are bureaucrats. You need to be on their level.
I wouldn't count on the lack of manpower argument. These big government types would love nothing more than to hire some more manpower to enforce ridiculous laws. They will fund it with ticket money and taxes. Also let's say the politicians are adamant about it enough to make the fine $1000 (the boaters really pissed them off in the meetings, or it started out at $50 but the Do-Gooder Safety Nazis thought that was too low after some accident). Even with low manpower, how many of us would want to chance such a large fine? The fine is $750 in California just for taking your car over 100 mph. People in Europe drive that fast all day long.

Something to think about...

IDIOTS!
Look at it this way.... All vehicle speed limits have gone UP in the last 15 years because cars are safer and can handle the speed better. Back in the 50s, all boats had thru hull exhaust. Safe boaters are paying the price... It should be mob rule. You should be able to beat the SH!T out of someone you find on the lake being a moron.
Next we will have stop lights on the lakes.

The route of the problem is jet skis and idiot riders. They cause more BS on the lake.
They should have a law against a moron driving across the main channel or skiing in the main channel. You can kill someone at 45 just as easily as 85.
