Due to complaints from around the lake about wake damage to docks and log booms I called Will Coleman, the Marine deputy. I asked about a sign at the public boat ramp notifying people to be conscious and respectful of their wake. He was inclined to help but was concerned too many signs at the public boat ramp, would cause boaters to disregard the information. He requested documentation of the problem. Coleman also requested that when a problem occurs people should call his dispatch number 541-396-2106. With a call in to the Marine Board, they could then have someone come out and document the problem as well as evaluate the damage. Please keep the number handy and report problems as you see them.
The TLA board will continue to work on this issue - getting the message out to boaters about costly damage that can occur.
