    I have noticed my cove becoming an anchoring cove which is fine with me - I will take that any day over the wake boats - cancel my for sale sign!

    As long as one particular association controls any legislation which addresses wake issues in coves, the problem will only get worse. The "watered down" version of a "no wake" bill for coves which becomes law in September is worthless.

    What's a wake??? Isn't that where you pay respects to a deceased person?

    Me too. I spent 15 years in that cove. It used to be a great cove. BTM had boats doing "fly by's" on the docks. Doing water tests. Lots of tubers and skiiers. Then all the sudden a few extra docks got added, cruisers (and other boats) started anchoring making it more crowded. While it is not a no wake cove, it might as well be. It just doesn't lend itself to the activity that used to be there. Bob would be sad. During my 15 years there, there were a couple pushes to make it no wake. Bob help fight it tooth and nail.

    PS remind me to tell you the story sometime about how Bob wanted to pave the road and asked the neighbors to help chip in....It was a great idea and a win for everyone, but some folks are just plain cheap!

    I wouldn't mind making that cove home someday, but options are more and more limited. I'd pretty much kill for one of those homes on the flat lots "north" of BTM. I used to float off our dock (back of opposite branch of cove, across from Bass Point) and watch the hardware roll in and out of BTM...also used to be former home cove of Recovery, if I'm not mistaken. I KNOW it was the home of "Wild Horses"...that boat was awesome as well.

    It's probably not that some folks are cheap, looking at some of the homes, many might be hanging onto a second home at the lake by the skin of their teeth.

    The next fight for the blue hairs will be a noise ordinance if their cove is now a place for everyone to anchor and party because of the no wake law. It's a never ending circle but at least it keeps them busy during retirement.

    Forgive my ignorance here but has there ever been a noise ordinance enacted due to people coving out?

    Only noise ordinance I know of on the lake is for loud exhaust. Would be hard to get something like that to pass for loud music/partying during the day. I've heard stories of some taking measures in their own hands and blasting Christian music or yelling at people all day long. I'm sure it will get interesting if big crowds start to congregate in new no wake coves.

    We live in the very back of South Buck Creek and when coming back home we have to zig zag though all the boats, but for the most part everyone is great about loud music and just having a great time. Very entertaining on some days.

    Yes. That is back when Dennis Hillhouse owned it. He was my next door neighbor.

    This blue (grey) hair likes big fast boats and loud music...

    In moderation, yes I do... The only ones that aggravate me are the young kids driving daddy's boat that have never worked a day in their life, but act like they are entitled to everything and that the laws/rules don't apply to them...

    And yes, I'm currently in therapy for my anger issues...
    Are you part of the problem? Or part of the solution?
