    Very cool, I haven't met the owner of that ATX. We are in the bay with the sandbar.
    We actually just got back from school vacation at Jay Peak. The family had a blast and the kids were asking if we could get a season pass there.

    Some good news at least in the immediate timeframe.

    The Michigan house bill 5532 is currently in discussions with the Michigan Boating Industries Association and is not planned to enter committee any time soon.

    But it eventually will enter committee for voting consideration in the house.

    Perhaps a wake up call (no pun intended) to get our act together to respect where our wake and noise impacts others.

    I am told that they received more emails on this issue from wakeboat owners than any singular bill/issue in many years.

    It's up to 25k+. Funny thing is, somehow my letter was sent to all Michigan state reps and many replied to me thinking I was in their district.

    The overall gist I got is this isn't going to progress as is or at all.

    I would love to get to a completely isolated spot to board or surf but on our TN lake, there are just too many houses and docks for that to be possible. I will say, when the TN law passed I was extremely worried about how it could be enforced. At least for two years, I think law enforcement has been lenient and not butts about this law. Our place on Tims Ford is at a locale that has probably 5 or so “river” miles before big lake water. Strict enforcement would kill my situation. I’d gladly never turn the stereo on if that kept us being able to use a wakeboat.

    What are the current TN rules for wake?

    It's the model WSIA legislation of 200 feet offshore

    Tennessee:

    Wakeboarding and wakesurfing are no longer permitted in coves or any “portion of a body of water” with a width of less than 400 feet.

    Wakeboarding and wakesurfing are not permitted with 200 feet of a “shoreline or a dock, pier, boathouse, or other structure located completely or partly on the water”.

    That is within reason, and I can see the logic behind that one.
