With the possibility of future no wake areas being requested for other established or new marinas for the commission to consider individually the commission adopted one statewide rule regarding establishing no wake zones surrounding commercial marinas. Marinas have high boat traffic and have many boats docked so these areas regardless of location are susceptible to accidents and boat damage due to wakes. Currently over half of the commercial marinas have a no wake restriction and this proposal will make the rules consistent throughout the state. The statewide rule eliminates the need for individual marina restrictions to be listed in separate rules.
