Re: anchorage etiquette

Someone needs to teach the Chesapeake boats etiquette then.

Power Boaters and sailboaters alike think nothing of running their generators all night in an anchorage to run their air conditioners to stay cool. Ive chastized a few of my friends who have the Honda 2000 ( I have one also) about anchoring upwind of others and then running it all night spewing fumes. They are very aware of fumes comming into their own cabins, but sometimes unwittingly dont think of those downwind. Mmost people are good manered, but it justs take one to ruin the party and ambiance,

I think because it is so brutally hot and humid. here in the Chessie in July and August people run them all night more frequently
