Boat creating a wake

Montana law states that it is unlawful to operate a vessel in a reckless, negligent, or dangerous manner. Specifically, these operating practices are illegal.

Improper Speed is not maintaining a proper speed while operating a vessel.

  • Vessel operators must observe all “no wake speed” signs or buoys located on the water.
  • Vessel operators are responsible for any damage caused by their wake.
  • Vessel operators must travel at a speed that permits bringing the boat to a stop within the assured clear distance ahead.
