    Default disco bay peeps

    ok first time going into the disco marina today with my son in my jetboat. and i was rolling a little faster than 5 mph but not by much seeing how it was hotter than you know what and i get a message over a loud speaker about the no wake zone. the guy has a sign on his dock that says something about 5 mph means 5 mph. i was in a 19ft jetboat and not pushing that much water. is this guy hid in his house all the time?

    I think 5 mph actually means "no wake" to a guy that has all his stuff tied to his dock.

    Bingo.. It's funny because the smaller v-drive and jet boats throw a bigger wake at slow speeds.

    I would have backed up to his dock and roosted him.

    Oh ok, Well I'm heading out to Discover Park to see if I got my carb problem fixed for a little fun before Summit replaces it with a REAL NEW CARB. Sure is a pain in the ass when it's a problem you have no control over and shoudln't have happened in the first place.

    Thanks. I would come down and see if we could meet up but, until I get this damn thing dialed in I can't see an hour drive just to have to reload and come home.

    Second point out after the Marina right? This guy has been yelling over that loud speaker for years. Sometimes it is needed but in most cases the guy is over the top!
