Don't pull my post,but..........................
I know I'm in the wrong area so move me to the general discussion area, but don't pull my post.........
Anyone ever get hassled by authorities on the lake?
I mean seriously not guilty of any "infractions" but get hassled anyways. I mean I'm ready to sell mine. Anyone else?

My view...Stop me once, and piss me off...Stop me twice (for the same reason by the same officer) and I'll curse you under my breath...Stop me three times (for the same reason and by the same officer) and it is harassment!
You should not be intimidated or scared into not riding that lake/river or whatever...those days are over with civil rights! --J
Seriously. Document, document, document!

In FL we live and deal with it. Part of the game. Could be why we like the swamp rides so much.
Weekend after the Hydrodrags I still had the 172 plastered on my boat and no Regs. Stopped 3 times and harrassed beyond imagination. Still had fun with my wife and never let it bother me. All in the attitude and what really matters. 60 miles later we called it a good day.

There are so many kids and azzholes on ski's that give us a bad rap... thats why the law screws with ski's so bad I've nearly been in fights before with people for telling them to slow the f*ck down in no wake zones There are alot of azzholes on ski's that don't pay any attention to the rules of the waterways... you really can't blame the law for screwing with us because of that... but it really pisses me off too

Yep, been pulled over to check all of my equipment. Was in "international" waterway and needed a whistle, a big flag, etc.. Of course, didn't have the big flag and they know most people won't. Mostly it's a revenue hunt, turn honest citizens into criminals.

Now about the dumb ass I saw today! Not an officer in sight! Kid yes a Kid jumping boat waves straight into the back of a boat. Yes, he landed in the boat. Messed up his ski no damage to the boat! The two guys in the boat picked up his ski at tossed it back in the water. Him also. Yes, Iam guilty I gave the kid a hand so he didn't lose his ski.
