Power boats on Town Lake (aka Lady Bird Lake)???

Posted by drntx on August 13, 2011

I live just east of Congress bridge on Town Lake. Power boats are prohibitted, but I am seeing a LARGE number of power boats (with > 30 HP engines) on the lake. Most seem to be associated with the rowing club, but recently I frequently see ski boats and large boats that appear to be associated with the Sheriff's dept. "tearing up the lake" at high speeds and creating large wakes. They do not appear to be on any mission or have a purpose other than "Joy riding". What gives??????
