At Lake Gaston, we have a few 2 and 3 lane bridges that don't have excess clearance and to go to different creeks. As a result, it is important for all boats to observe this, and create no wake, or the wake can push people's towers into the bridge. I saw a few weeks ago one boat bite it under the bridge when the water was high, and another friend said a mastercraft got hung up and a lot of damage was done. It doesn't take muchg variance to get into trouble.
Anyway, this past weekend I am barely putting through when an I/O hauling 2 tubes off the back of the boat was probably going about 10 mph through the bridge creating a wake. I screamed at him that this was a NO WAKE ZONE and he screamed back that he wasn't creating a wake. At that point, my boat starting rocking back and forth of which I replied, "THAT IS A WAKE".
So, I suspect most of you know what a no wake zone means, but damn if it doesn't piss me off when people don't observe it. Probably could have handled the situation better, but didn't have much time to be nice about it.
