The Water - Sharing the fun

The Water - Sharing the Fun

We all know water and oil don't mix. Sometimes neither do the activities on the lake it seems. Peace and quiet, long-weekend peaks, wake boarding, canoeing, reading time on the dock, screaming kids (and sometimes adults too...),your neighbours loud music, fishing boats, speed boats, big boats and even bigger boats, little boats, night skies and dock lights and well; it can get a just a little overwhelming.

So what's the solution? Managing expectations? Being tolerant? And probably remembering the impact we all have on each other and thinking of the other person too. 

POINTS TO PONDER:
Water Safety

  • wear PDFs - you and your passengers;
  • be aware of swimmers;
  • observe speed and no wake limits - maximum 10 km/hr within 30 meters of any shoreline including rivers and channels;
  • right of way to slower boats;
  • caution and courtesy to sailboats canoeists, kayakers, paddle-boaters and boarders;
  • know your Ontario Boating Regulations and operator age limits;
  • remember your boating license;
  • all vessels require boating and safety kits

PWC's, Wake Board Boats and Slow Cruisers

  • be aware of your high noise levels;
  • wake boarding boats with extraordinary wakes;
  • slow cruising boats off plane forming large rolling wakes
  • observe speed and no wake limits - maximum 10 km/hr within 30 meters of any shoreline including rivers and channels;

Towing Sports, Water Skiing and Wakeboarding

  • observe speed and no wake limits - maximum 10 km/hr within 30 meters of any shoreline including rivers and channels;.
  • start off from dock with skier/wakeboarder perpendicular to shore to lessen wake impact;
  • drop off towed passenger/skier/wakeboarder away from shores then slowly bring them to the dock;
  • use centre of lake for activities.

Water Quality

  • soaps & shampoos in the lakes and rivers are prohibited;
  • phosphate-based fertilizers near the waters are prohibited;
  • clean/flush all boat hulls, jet-skis from other lakes to prevent the introduction of Invasive Species.

Boat Ramps
