Is it the channel that starts behind Stawberry Island and runs up to the north chanell - just east of Deckers? Also - is that area no wake?

Last night on jet skis - I came into the area on what I think was the Baltimore Hy? I saw a lone "no wake" bouy after I went past the cottages on the right, but couldn't figure out where the no wake started and where it ended since I only saw one. Once I got into tha north to south channel, I saw some boats and jet skis on plane and others not. So, I'm not sure about that whole area. If it is no wake, certainly don't want to break the rules.

Here is a copy of the No Wake map for the area. There is a bouy East of Deckers and near the North entrance to the SNI and another out by the Lake/Bay on the North Channel. The area is marked in red on the map and is no wake.

The buoy I think you saw was the red one in the picture below. It is marking the no wake zone for all boats in the direction of the arrow.

The yellow buoy I don't believe is an official buoy. That is a no wake zone for boats over 26', all other boats must stay 200' foot off shore.

The blue buoy in the photo marks the other no wake zone for all boats in the sni.

OK here's a dumb question. Why is it called the "Sni Bora" when on all the charts it labeled as "Chenal A Bout Rond"? Is that French for Sni Bora or am I pronouncing it wrong?

That's a good question!! This is what I found after a quick search. I still don't understand how they came up with Sni Bora from Chenal A Bout Rond.

A little farther down is the Sni. Locally called (and written, even in official documents) the Sni, or Sni Bora, this fourth of the major channels of the Flats cannot be found on any chart. On charts it is always Chenal A Bout Rond (roughly -- The Round-Ended Channel). If you use just the right accent and slur the words just right, it sounds almost like Sni Bora. This causes no end of confusion for visiting boaters (at least for the ones who have charts.)
