A wakeless (idle) speed is defined as an operating speed at which the vessel does not create or make a wake or white water trailing the vessel. This speed is not to be in excess of five (5) miles per hour.
A wakeless (idle) speed is required within an area designated as a "Slow, No Wake" zone.
Utah's Speed and Proximity Law states that operators are required to reduce to wakeless (idle) speed when within 150 of the following:
persons in or floating on the water,
water skiers towed by another boat,
A water skier that had been towed behind another vessel and the skier is still standing or riding in an upright stance on the wake created by the other vessel
launch ramps, docks, or designated swimming areas.
The operator of a motorboat is responsible for any damage and/or injury caused by the wake produced by his vessel.
