Boaters: Please Slow Down Near Marinas and Ramp

The Port of Siuslaw is asking all boaters to PLEASE observe the Oregon State Marine Board Administrative Rules on “Slow-No Wake” while operating your boat
within 200 feet of the boat ramp and marinas.
OAR 250-010-0025 Basic Rule for “Slow–No Wake”
(1) No person shall operate a boat on the waters of this state in excess of a “slow-no wake” speed within 200 feet of a boat launch ramp, marina with a capacity for six or more moored vessels, floating home/boathouse moorage with six or more contiguous structures, and locations where persons are working at water level on floats, logs or waterway construction.
Boat wakes can damage docks, moored boats, and injure other boaters and public walking the docks. Violators can be charged with unsafe or reckless operation and face civil damages.
We appreciate your cooperation and wish you safe and enjoyable boating.
