Re: Powerboaters Are Funny

it isn't that powerboaters are more stupid than sailors.. it is that -anybody- can operate a powerboat. Have you watched the drivers in the cars around you? Most of them have trouble staying in a well marked lane that is surrounded by kerbs.. put that same lack of ability into a boat with "wide open" waters.. and chaos ensues.

A few of my co-workers are powerboaters.. If I use any nautical terms around them, I get blank looks
