Does anybody know of or dealt with no wake zones specific to a length of boat?
IE: no wake zone for boats 25' or longer.
SPRING LAKE - CITY OF FERRYSBURG – WC-70-20-002 - Slow-no wake speed.
On that portion of the waters of Spring Lake located within the City of Ferrysburg, Ottawa County, it is unlawful for:
The operator of a vessel less than 26 feet in length to exceed a slow-no wake speed when within 200 feet of any shore, dock, or pierhead.
The operator of a vessel 26 feet or more in length to exceed a slow-no wake speed.
Slow-no wake speed means a very slow speed whereby the wake or wash created by the vessel would be minimal.
The boundaries of the area described above shall be marked with signs and/or with buoys at all points of public entry. It is the responsibility of the City of Ferrysburg to provide, place and maintain all signage, including any buoys, to notify boaters of this watercraft control. This includes all public access sites within the area described above. All buoys must be placed as provided in a permit issued by the Department of Natural Resources and be in conformance with Michigan's approved Uniform Waterway Marking System. Buoys shall not be placed in a commercial shipping channel. This local watercraft control is only enforceable when properly marked.
