Re: another sailor complaining about power boaters

ABACO!!!! About 3 years ago in Abaco Bahamas we chartered a 37' Tayana Cutter for ASA courses. There was none of the power boat vs. sailboat crap that we see here on the Chessie. One day a power boat did come within 100' of us and the Captain was really annoyed, I told him were I come from they get close enough to wipe your bow.

Actually most of the power boaters around here are pretty nice, there is mostly seems to be a problem with the newbies or the weekend warriors. Just this past Summer a HUGE yacht came barreling up the bay, he throttled all the way down to almost idle when he passed and then back on plane he went...I was impressed.
