The Chesapeake Bay is home to an array of boats and boaters. There are approximately 212,000 registered boats in the State which means everyone needs to be aware of their actions out on the water.
With this in mind, the Natural Resources Police, would like to remind all boaters the importance of...WATCHING YOUR WAKE!
The definition of a boat wake is the wave of water resulting from the passage of the boat's hull through the water. This wave of water, depending on the size and speed of the vessel, can be very large, and may cause problems in a variety of situations.
