So, it makes me wonder, do the power-boaters think we're snobs?
Some people associate sailboats with big money. And there are a lot of weathy people who are snobs. Kind of like the guy who takes his murcielago out to grab a gallon of milk. Could be the nicest guy in the world, but someone will think he's a real d*ck, just b/c of what he drives.
