Agree that the "music" noise—sometimes foul—has to go....

I think you're describing a WakeSurfer. We have 2 or 3 regular WakeSurfers in Winter Harbor—daily.

Not long ago, I posted my photo showing the end of our dock had been awash for the first time in its 35-year history. It wasn't a WakeSurfer, but a conventional (but large) cruiser one might not even notice. (I've photographed the cruiser as well).

I photographed and measured that wash nearer the shore, showing the wake had soaked 23-inches over the next morning's quiet surface. A wake is measured by doubling its reach...so...this was a nearly 4-foot wake!

And no WakeSurfer in sight...
