ICW speed and wake I live on the ICW in Ft. Laud. and I cant make sense of the speed zone for manatees since it is allows speeding during the week but not on weekends. The manatees dont know what day of the week it is? My big problem with speeding in the ICW is that there is a 15in wake limit that is not enforced. Because of increasing tide heights which happen twice a year where the water is about a foot from my seawall cap. I get breaking waves over my seawall!! It kills my grass and causes errosion behind the seawall. This is only going to get worse over time as tide height creeps higher. Last year before the Ft. Laud boat show there was a 61 Viking going cruising speed by my house. Another time a Mc Mullen and Wing 78 exspress was going by just under planning speed (max wake). Sometimes when the tide is high but not max the wake hits my seawall just right where I feel it through the ground like a tremore. So the few have wrecked it for the many. uck them few. Make it no wake year round!!! PS I have tried Ft. Laud Police who patrol this stretch and they are ineffective or dont care. I have stopped calling them.
