    Reversing the 2stroke ban...

    Hello fellow PWC owners in Nevada.
    Recently I spoke with wild life rangers and few other boaters.
    And from what has been said they are considering reversing the 2stroke ban.
    There has been studys on water conditions on the lake since the ban has been in place, and there has been no significant improvement in the water.
    Since the Lake Mead recreational has been loosing revenue and no improvement in water conditions they are considering allowing 2stroke PWC back in the water.

    So wondering has anyone else heard about this, and what is your input in this situation?

    Thanks for info, and please no bashing.

    Re: Reversing the 2stroke ban...

    I wouldn't buy that. Something like this would be very difficult to reverse. Also, consider that they had this information before they made the final decision to ban 2 strokes. They banned all jetskis on Lake Mead for a year (2001 I think?) and their studies showed no significant difference in the water quality.

    Basically, the scientific facts had little to do with the decision to ban 2 strokes. Therefore I wouldn't expect them to start applying science to their logic now. I don't think they care about the revenue either. After all, its the federal government we're talking about. They seem to care very little about how much money they spend.

    I used to work at the national park. They won't revise that ban. They don't care about money. The best thing you can do is learn the loopholes so you can still ride there.

    It's definitely not about the money. Think about all the money they wasted on surveys, studies, etc. The ban will be in effect permanently. Maybe the loophole we need is what Joey was talking about. Maybe some of these "rangers" will not mind the 2-strokes as much.

    If you have a 2 stroke, you should stay away from Lake Mead. It is not 2 stroke friendly, especially if you have a sit down. They don't like sit down 2 strokes in particular. Tell all your friends that have sit downs.
