Re: Recourse for Powerboats

Here's one, where there isn't a bloody thing it seems anyone can do about it. The entrance to Nantucket Harbor is bordered by a jetty on each side, extending a couple hundred yards from the shore. It appears it is not a part of the No Wake zone, as the ferries and every power boat are at full throttle through there right up to Brant Point.

The tough part is you have little to no room to maneuver to take the wake favorably and they will pass quite closely. It will take you on the beam. Worse, if you are towing your dinghy, it could be flipped. Sort of a nerve wracking place.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
