Just like the Speed Limit proponents said when that debate was raging...

You need an actual NUMBER to allow for enforcement, as "reasonable & prudent" was too vague.

The same goes here... you need a number. Different boats have different steerage speeds. How do you differentiate? How can you tell if they are going over their "maintain steerage" speed? At what height does a wake become a violation? How do you write a ticket for that?
