Southport Marina, A Cruisers’ Net Sponsor, has been begging for a No-Wake zone through this busy portion of the Waterway for months. See https://cruisersnet.net/170012. Despite the unwise decision of the kayakers to be on the water at 8:50PM, speed had to have been a factor in the collision. Oak Island is across the Waterway from Southport.
