BOAT LENGTH ENFORCEMENT CHANGE
At its July 20, 2010 meeting, the CSCD changed policy on boat length enforcement on Cordry and Sweetwater Lakes. Previously, the Conservancy accepted Indiana titles as proof of boat length requirements. Now, the Conservancy will begin physically measuring any new runabouts to be stickered for the lakes. Any runabout (hull-type craft) over 19' will be disqualified for use on the lakes This decision was passed without any organized study of surrounding lakes, safety issues of certain types of boats, etc. Previously stickered craft will not be measured. The pictured boat is an inboard ski boat designed for minimal wakes, superior manuverability, and safety oriented propeller placement.
