[QUOTE=biffer;429918]So what is this saying to you? To me it says that they don't want ribs or maybe pleasure craft down there.

An alternative view is that they believe 'professional boaters' will drive responsibly but have there doubts about the leisure side and have therefore came out with a blanket ruling that makes it easier to notice the irresponsible.

The guy, in the newspaper article, who had a number of warnings before being taking to court springs to mind as most people would have taken the hint after the first warning.

As far as Salcombe goes the Harbour Master has the option to enforce the speed limit out as far as his jurisdiction goes, they are all in a health and safety nightmare and running scared, he has chosen to extend the speed limit as far as he can so that he can't get sued over someone getting run over.

The restriction is about 150 yds in form the Castle Ledge Buoy now which makes things a little easier!
