Report shabbona lake 10hp limit in Boating Posted Thursday at 03:10 PM I was kayaking back in the no-motor zone and a guy with an aluminum boat with Wisconsin stickers fired up his small HP gas motor and had it pretty much full throttle. Front end of his boat was at a 30-40 degree angle as he traversed the cove. I was waiting for him to hit a submerged stump and go flying! The things you see when out on the water! Remember when comedian George Carlin said, "Think of how stupid the average person is, then realize that half of them are stupider than that!"
