To promote and facilitate safe boating and a safe boating environment on Bob Lake.
Bob Lake offers an almost ideal recreational boating environment: small enough to invite canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding; large enough to accommodate PWCs, water skiers and wakeboarders. It possesses a variety of boating environments from its large open main body to a number of quiet bays and inlets where wildlife and nature are close at hand. Attractive to fishermen are the lake’s stock of lake trout and small-mouth bass.
The enjoyment of all that Bob Lake’s waters have to offer depends on a few critical factors:
- Awareness of one’s environment and potential hazards.
- Awareness of and conformity to the laws and regulations.
- Courtesy and respect.
It’s a resource that we all can share and enjoy safely and responsibly.
- To provide members with safe boating and boating regulation information.
- Under the advisement of Coast Guard Canada, to identify and mark shoals.
- To identify and post shoreline areas and narrows where speed limits and no wake zones are required.
- Post to the Association’s website active links to all relevant Federal boating regulations and guidelines and invite the membership to connect to them.
- Draw up a map identifying the locations of known shoals and other hazards.
- Determine the most appropriate actions to mark these hazards.
- Identify those areas of the lake where speed limits and/or “no wake zones” are needed.
- Determine the most appropriate means to post these areas.
