Kayaks limit activity of boats and Jet Skis
Buyers of boats and Jet Skis, beware. Up until this year, boat owners who either had slips or launched their boats at the Small Boat Harbor or Erie Basin Marina were able to enjoy rafting or water skiing inside the breakwater. People could launch Jet Skis at Gallagher Beach and all these people used the same waterway. The reason was the open lake was too rough to do this.
Well, it seems someone has decided that kayaks, mostly rentals by novices, can also use the area. Now boaters and Jet Skiers can no longer go over 10 mph. So I say to future buyers of boats and Jet Skis, be aware that the inner waterway cannot be used for these fun things.
