Excessive wakes damage shorelines, docks, moored boats and other property. They also threaten safety.
For these reasons, sign or no sign, you must slow your vessel to 9km/hr (your bow must be "down") within 30 metres (1/2 the length of a hockey rink) from shore, a dock, floating platform or another boat almost anywhere you go boating in Muskoka (exception: pulling up a skier, etc. heading out perpendicular from shore).
MLA believes that "No Wake" signs promote awareness of wake safety and courtesy and promote "traffic calming".
