A "wake" refers to the path of moving waves a boat leaves behind it and is a product of the boat size, weight, hull shape, boat speed, boat trim, and water depth. A boat being accelerated by the force of the engine transfers this energy into the wake. All boats create a wake and all boaters are responsible for their wake.  You can be proactive and reduce your wake simply by changing how you operate your boat to having a lower impact on those around you.

Watch your Speed: 

As the boat operator, it can be easy to control your wake.  Understanding the speeds under which your boat operates is the first step.
