When did no-wake law change?

Editor:

So - when did the no wake law change at Buckeye Lake? This year has been a record for the amount of people blasting around Cranberry Bog and through Maple Bay. I realize the lake patrol has more to do than police these areas, but it’s been so frustrating to watch boats showing absolutely no respect for first, the laws of the lake, and second, the consideration of sea wall owners.

We live at Maple Bay and unfortunately, we see not only young folks that may not have a good grasp of the laws, but older boaters that don’t seem to care. Either way they have no excuse, but all we are asking for is some simple respect for the people that pay taxes for the areas that the speeding boaters are having fun destroying.
