Re: Recourse for Powerboats

I don't know. My boat is set up to handle big off shore swells, so a boat wake has never been any thing but a tease. There was this "CRAZY BOAT" bizzness in Key West, that would use me as point of reference to do donuts around. This was on a 30 foot cat that I was running eco tours on. I went down to where they were based out of, and told the owner and the captain that if he came with in 100 yards of me or any body I knew again I would light him and all if his boats on fire, And that was just for starters. I said this very calmly and matter of factly after politely introducing my self. They stayed way out of the harbour after that. I don't recomend this approach unless you look like you might actually do it.
