(01). There is a spot on the Middle Channel that states it is a NO WAKE AREA. I could read the bold print but I couldn't get close enough to read the fine print. Does this mean no wake for everyone or just by boat length? If by boat length how long a boat and how far from shore should I be? If other boats have to abide by the No Wake Rule can smaller boats pass them?
(02). The boat traffic has increased so much since I was running these rivers and the boat size has increased as well. When approaching a boat from the stern and its throwing off a large wake 3 to 4 feet is it better to give this boat a wide birth and ride the wake as far away from the boat as possible where there is more distance between the waves and they have dissipated some what or come up to about 50 yards from the stern and swing out and pass while the wake is at its highest point but closer together?
(03). With the increased number of boats on the rivers and channels is better to ride close to the break line or run the center of the river or channel with the boat traffic? I have always found it safer running as close to the break line as possible on the Canadian side because of the fewer seawalls thus eliminating the back wash of any wakes that are generated.
If you have any other ideas as how to make our rides on the rivers and lake safer, smoother and enjoyable please join in.
As always thanks for your input and on-going support.
