Re: Recourse for Powerboats

pyewackette, you are absolutely right, I got off topic and rambled. I'm sorry.
As my present boat cannot navigate most of the ICW bridges, I'll not be a menace to anyone in the ICW, so why I even made any comment is curious. Old timer's disease, I guess.
Funny though, how so many sailors are so easily angered by pleasure power boaters, but shrug off the flagrant discourtesy of the LEO's of every ilk that barrel through crowded anchorages and waterways on their way to their next boarding.
