    when's the last time you went in the east river? they allegedly made ENTIRE east side 5mph over the summer... friend of mine (vman) was riding with his wife on their skis and were stopped and told the area is 5mph effectively immediately....

    wondering if u came across the same thing or when the last time u ride there was?
    for it i'm pretty sure

    This is regarding the 5 MPH rule in the east river. I fly seaplanes out of there and I wish all boat traffic was 5mph. Unfortunatly it is never inforced thats with NYPD and Coast Guard boats lurking around as well. I am very surprised that someone stopped you. For us float pilots the wakes off of these boats makes our job incredibly difficult. We have to circumnavigate sometimes 3 foot swell boat wakes and strong currents. If anyone is floating around the east river in any kind of boat I am asking you PLEASE slow down if not completely stop all toghter if you see the planes about to land or take off, it will save lives. There have been quite a few close calls over the past years and its getting worse by the day with the increased boat traffic! Any help on your ends would be greatly appreciated on our end! Thanks in advance
