A No Wake Follow-Up
One of the more interesting disagreements that popped up in today's Willamette River Field Guide show centered on the proposed "no wake zone" near Ross Island. (You can find a recent Oregonian article about the issue here.)
First came a comment/question from uncommonsense, which I read on the air:
Do you still support banning motorized boats from the holgate channel and in ross island lagoon? I think it's pretty short sighted, Paddlers only seem to come out in nice weather, and the area would be un-utilized a lion share of the time.
Then BrianW weighed in:
Wildlife uses the island at all times. Erosion from wakes is a problem addressed by the no-wake zone.
