This ain't Kentucky, or Tennessee, with those big, sprawling, beautiful reservoirs. Our little 3,000-Acre lakes that support big motors are beat to death by pleasure boats that don't belong there. Big-motor bass boats share the problem, but only a small part of the blame. A fast bass boat on-plane makes very little wake, by it's design. I think the question here in particular, is Hoover. Other lakes, like Pymatuning (12,000 acres) would be affected, as well. My last 2 boats were purchased to suit the restrictions at Hoover. I've loved the tranquility offered by being on a lake that had a 10-hp limit, we all have. I hate to think that it might go away. But I have to admit, nobody has the right to determine that Alum Creek Reservoir (Same Size As Hoover), should be unlimited, & Hoover should be limited. We Hoover lovers have to look at it from both sides. I've known Steve Kirby for many years, he's a good man, I'm proud to be a friend of his. Yes, he runs tournaments, with a tremendous number of participants, and he's done a great job at it over the years. The participants win money, trophies, etc., etc. Not a thing wrong with that. And the comradery & friendship that comes with those tournaments is priceless. So don't make him out to be a bad guy! There are fewer of us with small boats, than the big boats. They outnumber us by a margin we could never win in a vote, so forget it. That's the bottom-line, the majority wins. I wish we could keep Hoover a 10-HP lake, I've enjoyed it for 30 years. But we have to face the majority, & they'll win. I'd bet Lake of The Woods & the North End will be no-wake, we'll adapt.
