I am all for this if there is a clause at the bottom that says "This law only relates to tournament style ski boats and does not include anyone pulling a tube behind any boat."

She was not too thrilled with the citation.
Hopefully this law can pass and you can go out without worrying!

I was at Pewaukee Lake with the owner of the dealership, testing a jet ski and after it stopped running, a Malibu towing a skier bore down on him from behind and the teen-aged driver brought it to idle about 20' behind, but only because the skier dropped the rope. The little pinhead had another guy and three girls, all in their teens, in the boat not one of them was looking forward. Then, the little turd idled over to the launch and yelled that, because he was towing a skier, he had right of way and the owner quickly corrected him on this.

That little dork could have had a wrap-around mirror and everyone he knew and they might not have been considered 'competent'.

Fingers are crossed it'll pass!

Spotter or mirror, wouldn't have made a difference. Can't outlaw stupidity.

The Wisconsin DNR guy that gave us our ticket said anyone who can communicate effectively with you regardless of age.
