Re: Powerboaters Are Funny

I don't know about them being 'funny' but some power-boaters sure are stupid.

One bright sunny day I was at the top of the mast in the bosun's chair when along comes this power boat kicking up a great wash. I yelled out over the noise of his engine to slow down and gave the universal palms-downward "slow down" signal. The moron thought I was waving to him...although he never slowed down at least he had the manners??? to wave back.

At the marina I always try to moor next to and opposite nice well-kept sailing boats. Less fear of coming aboard to find gouges in my paintwork if I know my neighbours are sailors rather than mere drivers.
