It is too bad the marina there does not police more of this stupid behavior on their boat ramp. All they seem to care about is the people renting those houseboats. Some of us boaters spend money at your marina also. They could at least print up a flyer with some of those, now 11, things posted above, so people know the code when launching their boats. OR post signs.
Of course all they care about are the people renting their houseboats. Why not, they rent for $3,000 to $5,000 per rental, where just one of you joe blow boaters come in and drop $5.25 on a bag of ice, big sale.

Once gas hits 6.00 a gallon, you'll see all the poor people off the lakes, which should put a damper on boating rudeness events.

That's funny, a bag of ice is a dollar at the grocery store near me, so the marina is gouging all who come there. The main thing is that joe six pack won't be able to come to the lake when gas is at 6.00 a gallon, so there won't be a whole lot of need for those over priced bags of ice and other ill priced "conveniences" when that happens.

If this is what gets rid of the clueless boaters, I AM ALL FOR IT.
