"Our main concern for the town is to provide safety for not only the citizens but for our visitors," Cedar Point Mayor Harry Redfearn said.
The waterway traffic often includes large tugs and 50- and 60-foot boats that fling big waves that crash against the personal docks of residents with no marshland buffer between them and the channel, Redfearn
"It's something boaters certainly need to address," Redfearn
said of the wakes."They can certainly see the area's congested."
Boater Tom Edmondson has fished area waters for more than three decades and seen hulls on smaller boats in that area scratched when waves tossed the boat against docks and pilings.
Large wakes also make it difficult when launching boats at the public ramp.
