What is too much noise?
Noise from poorly muffled or unmuffled motors is not only annoying—it keeps boat operators from hearing voices, signals, and danger warnings. If you're around a loud noise for a long time, the noise can make you tired and lower your reaction time.
The next time you go boating, be polite to others. Reduce the noise level, especially when you're in crowded waterways, or near residential areas. Courtesy counts. Remember, your actions reflect on all boaters.
