Watch for the No-Wake Zones at Pungo Ferry! AICW Statute Mile 28
Fair warning and a word to the wise! Pungo Ferry lies along the North Landing River, just north of the VA – NC state line.
A word of warning…yesterday traveling from Norfolk to Coinjock at Pungo Ferry we were stopped by skiff manned by three VA police officers. Our offense? Violation of a no wake zone. We are running a 55 ft. Fleming weighing 70,000 lbs. We had just done a slow pass of a small sailboat. The no-wake sign was buried in a marsh. Our wake was probably 6 inches. We were stopped and detained for about 45 minutes, while they also stopped other boats, mostly sailboats. They were “guilty” of doing about 6 knots…imagine that!! What huge wakes!
Came through today (11/2) no one in site. Could this have been a holiday prank?
