YARDPRO is on a distinguished road
here we have a lot of 50+ sport fishermens.. most are considerate when crusing, but Katie bar the door when returning with a big catch... also when they are by themselves they will slow more often than when they are in a large group returning from offshore.

I had one 60 foot hatteras trolling cut right in front of me when i was heading out of the inlet then yell at me that i was running over his lines.... idiot..

worse is all the small boats that sit and fish in the channel and will not move out of your way.. At 30' my boat is not huge, but it is a pain when i am pointing at close to my max, and am just joing to mkae out of the inlet, then have to tack or fall off the wind to avoid a bottom fisherman in a 17' flat bottom...

I grew up in power boats, and still own one that we island hop, ski and dive from... i would ALWAYS have the common sense to get out of the way when a large boat comes my way..
