This seems to a global or at least a western civilization phenomena. A new social group of people is buying boats. They seem to believe that they are driving cars on the sea. They do not slip (as I was told in some other tread it is called), but they park the boat. They are a major threat to other people in kayaks and dinghies and seem to be immensely entertained by making waves that rock even my ship.

Fortunately they often sail (too) close to the coast so hopefully this phenomena will strangle itself.
