I've got a question for you. Have you ever been in a 40+ foot Sportfish going just in gear with trolling gear (SVM) on and gotten pulled over. Then after you have told them you are going as slow as you can go. The cop tells you "you need to put your boat in and out of gear in slow zones" I don't know if you have been through a bridge by an inlet on icoming tide but I can't imagine putting your boat in and out of gear through the bridge!
I would like to hear what you have to say.
