I agree with you Jim except the part about the type of boat. I am sure there are some mindful and courteous wake board boaters who know and follow all the rules, including no wake zones and yielding to non motorized craft, but I have not met one. At least not on Lewisville.
Can't speak for now, but back when I worked in a boat Lewisville was officially designated as one of the most dangerous lakes in the state. As a general rule, as the proximity to urban centers shrinks, the ignorance factor grows. I used to fear pontoon boats and PWCs above all other craft; that's what the novices generally drive. I really believe that boater education should be mandatory on urban waterbodies.
One night in the patrol boat I had a PWC cut across my bow really close; I had to cut the throttle and swerve hard to avoid running over him. This was after sunset, when it's illegal to operate a PWC. I lit him up and he stopped. Didn't have a clue that he wasn't allowed to operate at night. The conversation went like this:
"Which was the privileged vessel?"
"Who had the right of way?"
"And why did I have the right of way?"
"Uh...... Because You're the Sheriff?" (My boat had SHERIFF in 18" red letters down each side)
"What color light did you see on the bow of my boat?"
"I didn't see any lights."
"Walk up to the bow (I had him aboard my boat) and look from the side that you crossed from."
"There's a red light."
"Yup. Know what that means?"
"Uh...... You have the right of way?"
If you work enforcement in a boat you will quickly learn that our waterbodies are full of ignorant people like him. It never occurs to them that there are laws regulating vessel operation, or that those laws were enacted for the safety of everyone on the water. And in too many jurisdictions, local elected officials feel that it's unPC to mess with Texans while they are recreating, and that enforcing the laws might cost them precious votes at the next election.
