    Creating a wake in a no wake zone

    So I was out this weekend in the harbor. This would be probably my 40th time out here with no problems. I have a 2011 sea doo gti se. I have been passed by the harbor patrol boat almost evertime time out without a problem. Today I got yelled at by a boat owner chilling in his slip telling me this is a no wake zone Im like this is my cruise speed I am going 4 mph I cant go any slower! Then a little later got yelled at by a volunteer coast guard guy telling me no wake Im like im only going 4mph. 2 min later passed the habor police with no problems. Anyway rant off lol maybe they were just having a bad day! Has anyone else had this problem?The sign says 5mph no wake zone. Im fine if I am going 4mph right? This is the slowest I can go If I were to get a ticket this I could easily fight right? When I put in the foward position it will bounce around from 3 to 4 5 mph. Thoughts

    You can use reverse to slow down if needed. People just like to bitch, all that matters is what the official patrol thinks.

    Is it 5 mph or no wake. ? If it's both then technically u have to slow down to create no wake as stated use reverse if u have to. In the end it just depends on if the officers are bore or not
