No Wake Equals Idle – Ohio State Law
No person shall operate a vessel at greater than idle speed or create a wake within an area buoyed or marked as a “no wake” area.
Thousands of dollars of damage is caused to sea walls each year by boaters using excessive speed in “no wake” areas. This damage is the responsibility of individual property owners, not the State of Ohio. Excessive wakes near people fishing is extremely dangerous and very annoying. The lake is a shared resource for many types of recreation. Be considerate of your fellow boater.
