No Wake Speed

Around what speed does your 7-10m rib throw no wake, or more correctly small enough wake for "no wake" zones?

Probably at idle or just fast idle speeds.

Happy Boating

Our no wake speed limits are below 4 knots on signs up our local river but at 4 knots many boats make more wake than 40 knots.

Look at the water. If there's a wake you're going too fast. Once you've got it sorted then you'll know what the speed is for your boat.

Thanks guys - just trying to plan a rib tour time, so estimating the time in no wake zones....4 knots sounds great.
