  • It is illegal to operate any vessel or manipulate any water skis, an aquaplane, or a similar device in a careless, reckless, or negligent manner that endangers the life, limb, or property of any person.
  • Except for taking off from shore, the towing vessel must stay at least 100 feet from shores, piers, bridges, people in the water, and other passing vessels.
