    Got in trouble in Wisconsin

    By myself in a cove doing hard right circles. Cop watched me for 20 or so minutes before coming over and giving me this. He said it was a state law that boats can't go in circles. What??

    If you were doing something wrong, why did it take 20 minutes to approach/stop you? F'n donut shop was probably out of his top 20 favorite flavors.

    Re: Got in trouble in Wisconsin

    Depends on the municipality you were in. Not a state law. Sure he said "state law"? Some, very few actually, municipalities in WI have laws governing "repetitious course" = basically means on a pwc you must follow the normal counterclockwise rotation around the lake, just like the boats are, and can't just hang out in any one spot zipping around. What lake were you on?

    Many water cops in WI will sit and watch a pwc for a while before bothering to write a ticket. In other words, if you're just fffffing around for a couple minutes, then cease and move along, you're good to go. If you just sit in front of them fffffing around for 20 minutes straight, well then they will adjust your behavior by writing you a ticket. Seems like a better option to me versus just writing tickets immediately.

    I've had cops see me jumping a boat wake well within the 100 distance, then I see them and stop, and they give me a head shake and maybe an eye roll, and then move on to look for boaters who are actually causing real problems versus hassling me.


    WHEN IN DOUBT, GAS IT!

    Yeah, I'm an @sshole, but I'm not a complete @sshole.
