I never meant to imply how speed needs to be measured, I just think there needs to be an actual measurable and articulable limit expressed in speed over ground, not an arbitrary one expressed as the...

Yeah, you got me. My experience operating a power boat in current is limited to just the Piscataqua, Penobscot, Lamprey, Cocheco, Taunton, Annisquam, Connecticut, Songo, Merrimack, Potomac, Tom's,...
