Ways to improve our water safety
As someone who gets out on the water every chance I get, I would like to suggest the following.
With regard to use of the waterways, and general marine safety, I think that the 5mph and/or No Wake Zone should begin at the Hamilton Princess.
The harbour is busy with motor, sail and paddle boating, some swimmers and turtle habitat. As the law states, one can speed through until just before the dinghy club.
In another matter regarding water safety, I believe one should have to sit a very basic general water safety test once they can operate over a 5hp engine.
Both of these issues will benefit our environment and improve the safety for all life on and in the water.
NO WAKE PLEASE
