1986.

Maybe the exact time can't be pin-pointed like that, but that's the first time one of my neighbors got a boat that was too big AND too fast for this lake. (Either one is tolerable, but the combo is not.) At that time, there were already plenty of rude, inconsiderate, and just plain stupid boaters out there, but limitations on their equipment put limitations on their annoyance and destructive abilities. And the addition of wake boats to their arsenals just makes things worse.

Those boats in the hands of responsible boaters cause few problems. Irresponsible boaters in smaller boats can cause plenty of problems, but are often easy to avoid. But put the two together, and you get what we have today. And you get the long-timers like me longing for the days of 1985, and before.
