Boaters are damaging shorelines
I live in the narrows, and can tell you, with certainty, the two biggest problems for shoreline erosion are:The new sport of surfing: These boats are built to produce the largest wake possible; their wake is sometimes three feet over the shoreline, every single day back and forth through the narrows.
The extra-large cruisers, driving full throttle through our narrows, again three foot waves over our shoreline. It happens every day, and these two problems are causing the destruction of our shoreline.http://ottawacitizen.com/opinion/letters/todays-letters-loneliness-and-fighting-shoreline-erosion
