Re: Recourse for Powerboats

My favorite this season (so far):

We're headed offshore, about 1/2 mile out, and a 30-35' mobo overtakes us on the stbd side; like 75-100 feet away. I present my stbd quarter to the wake and we grab on to whatever is secure and ride it out. Then the other boat makes a turn to stbd! He could have turned several hundred yards maybe even a quarter mile earlier. It was almost (almost) like he decided to give us a little thrill before turning south. I know that the Pacific is bigger, but the Atlantic is still a fairly large body of water. Seems like an a-hole move to me.

Stay thirsty, my friends.
