A related issue arising from over idle-speed headway in no wake areas is the effect of waves on the shore, dwellings and people. One collateral reason for the no-wake rule is to reduce erosion on the shoreline, for splash-through on docks, boat movement in slips, waves that knock people (particularly little ones) over. At the entrance to Minge Cove, boaters often approach at a very high rate of speed and then throttle down at the last possible moment, or several yards past the No-Wake marker, or substitute "slow" for "no wake". This results in excessive wave action against the adjacent properties, and the problems noted above. Courtesy, consideration for others and the adjacent shoreline, support the wisdom and enforcement of the no-wake rules, including the approach.
