he really needed to lay out the context better. See, where he sails from, it's not unusual to pass or be passed by 40-50 vessels an hour on a busy weekend morning.
So, it can get a little crazy. Imagine if you MISSED waving to someone? then you look like a sob, or those folks wonder what is wrong with them, or rumours start, and next thing you know...
Another wave-heavy passion is motorcycling- every bike low fives every other bike for the most part 'round these parts whether american iron or metric, ... except on friday 13th. When you get 10-50 000 motorcycles in one place it gets too crazy to wave to everyone.

Me? I wave, or raise my mug.
You've got it exactly right. It's not like I'm passing a couple of boats an hour - it's a constant stream of humanity.
