Re: Informal, unscientific survey
1.) never in over 50 years of boating of all kinds.
2.) no one I know. did see a powerboater pulled over for speeding in a no wake zone..he was going to get a ticket for sure.
3.) have never really encountered that level of scrutiny on the water. Did live in a town,where the local PD constantly set up traffic stops and friends eventually told me they were tired of getting pulled over for no good reason when leaving my town after dinner.
FWIW, I think your Harbormaster, sounds fair. Speak to them once...before issuing a summons. Sounds like a good for business approach too. Boaters spend money, So the town's business owners could lose money if people stay away..
Maybe you should elect the harbormaster to office...sounds like has more sense than those in office..
