Rock River in Newville

I know we discussed DOT 3 & DOT 4 brake fluid sometime last year but
don't remember the 3 vs. 4 reasons as to which does what. After all
the rain quit for a few days, we took our Amphi in at The Anchor Inn
on the Rock River in Newville. The water is very high and the water
started on the ramp about 20 feet from usual. We cruised down under
the Hwy 59 bridge and came about for about a mile or so and turned
around to go back and eat. All of a sudden I heard this noise and
looked around to see a blue light and a Rock County Sheriff boat
stopping us. What a brat this guy was as he proceeded yelling to us
that we were in violation of the no wake on the river due to high
water in yards and boathouses. We were out of the no wake zone and
weren't really going that fast and so didn't think anything but the
usual. He said we'd be getting out citation in the mail soon. Seems
like he could have just warned us about no wake areas due to high
water and let it go at that if we promised to slow down and not make
waves but no. It must have been a slow afternoon and this young pup
was on a power trip.
