    Warning to Palm Beach County FL Riders

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/loc...,5953789.story

    a guy got killed last Sunday on Lake Osborne. Now the police are promising
    heavy enforcement activities aimed at PWC riders.

    I rode last Sat on Lake Ida, mentioned in article. Will be my last time
    for this year.......

    Man that sucks. Whats crazy is lake ozborne has about 2 or more police boats on the water all the time. There is two places on that lake that they have offices on. They are really strict there. Been pulled over last year there just to check reg and what not. On lake ida i have yet to see a officer on the water and i feel that lake gets busy. Sometimes to busy.

    Yeah Osbourne and Idah get congested. There is alot of traffic on both lakes..

    Sucks there is no other large lakes in the area. People from all over go there. Idah in the morning is nice though. Before the masses get there.

    Been out lately Adam?

    Why does everybody ride in lakes when you have such a beautiful ocean and the intercoastel to ride in? Get away from the crowds! Head up to the Stuart area- wide open running.

    Cops on Lake Ida Sat

    BSO water cops pulled up to the shore and asked my son his
    age as he was sitting on Jetski. He replied 14 and they asked
    if he had boater card. He said yes (he does) and they moved on.

    People on shore near ramp (on east side) were drinking beer. Reg
    cops pulled up and told them to pour it out and stop. One of
    the wild, crazy eyed, revelers (jk, he had 3 kids and a wife) tried
    to shake cops hand and he backed up like he had the plague.

    God help you if you've had any alcohol............

    Broward and Palm Beach are off my list for riding areas.

    Last weekend at Crandon Marina in Key Biscayne I was warned
    by passerby that they changed the rules on the no wake zone
    for area directly in front of channel entrance. It's a huge area,
    no real signage to tell you what's what. Manatee is the excuse
    this time. Coming back in my aging eagle eyes spotted the water
    cops on the side waiting. Slowed down no incident.....but just
    more police pressure.

    Hey Skips - is your area strictly open ocean or are there some protected
    areas, i.e. canals, lakes, etc that you can open 'em up??

    I do like these lakes for the fresh water, seems like my Kawa likes to get
    a fresh water bath once in a while! But I agree, with a 70mph craft these
    are small areas, you run out of room quick. That's why I like the Keys, lots of places to let 'er go........
