We last covered water recreation, issues and management, in successive issues of LakeLine (Vol. 24, Nos. 3 and 4) in 2004. In those issues, we discussed best boating practices to avoid conflicts, recreational carrying capacity, motorboat noise, physical impacts of boats on lakes, personal watercraft management, competitive sport fishing, freshwater SCUBA and large floating objects (trampolines, rafts, slides). In this issue, we talk about the phenomena of wake boats – the high-horsepower, ballast-loaded, stern-heavy, plodding boats that create a supersized wake large enough to surf on – amongst yet more water recreational pursuits that can impact our aquatic environments.
