The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous complaints of speeding boats on the Canal in Seneca County. The Sheriff would like to remind everyone the maximum permissible speed on narrow canals is 5mph. But practically speaking, if you’re creating a breaking wave or the wash from your boat is hitting the bank, you’re driving too fast. You are responsible for your wake and can cause damage to docked boats and the shore line. Thank You and lets have a safe and fun rest of the boating season.
