another sailor complaining about power boaters
Thank god the Power boaters are finally out of the water here in Buffalo N.Y. This was my first season with a sailboat. I can Honestly say that as a power boater I always respected my distance from any sailboat (or any other boat)underway but I dont seem to get the same respect from other power boaters now that I'm on a sailboat. It also seems that the bigger the boat the less likely that the helmsman knows and obeys the rules of the water. All things consitered I'm glad I sold my gas guzzler. In less than 2 weeks I will be dreaming of sailing for about 6 months while I wait for my marina to open once again. Dose anyone think my wife will miss me between now and the 15th when I have to pull my girlfriend out of the water for the season.
