bljones has a spectacular aura about bljones has a spectacular aura about
Jerk of the Week?

No, not me.

This guy:



This is a big day in Port Dover- thousands of motorcycles flock to town, tens of thousands of spectators, and dozens of boats, for a day of fun, fellowship, music and beer.

There were boats rafted up along the pier,

and this guy above, who decided to drop anchor inside the swim area off the beach.



Now, I know it is September and the beach is largely empty, not a whole lot of swimming but...

what do you think: Cool or uncool?

If there are not a lot of swimmers? Cool.

Bull##it!!!!! If the beach is still open, and it is if it is marked, then nobody belongs there. Period! Local LEO's should be seeing how big a ticket it is.

Re: Jerk of the Week?

If there aren't going to be any swimmers I don't have a problem with it. I see one buoy in one picture that might be a warning marker, but I can't tell, and can't tell what area it marks. If he's outside of the designated swimming area then it's not a problem.
Maybe a problem if there's going to be a meeting of the local Polar Bears club lol?

Re: Jerk of the Week?

not cool at all. Even if they never started their engines again, people could swim under that boat and still get hurt on the hull, rudders, or props just by not paying attention

I'm with you. I see a "No Wake" buoy - but no clear markers that this is a swimming area only.

Unless the guy is local and knows exactly what's up...cool.

Re: Jerk of the Week?

Do you know whether the swim area is marked on a chart or not? Maybe no swimmers, but there could be canoe & kayak folk who'd like to use the area.

Problem is, if he gets away with it this time, what's to stop him from thinking he can do it at the height of the summer season? Start teaching him manners now, before he hurts someone.

Re: Jerk of the Week?

No problem this time of the year. The water is icy cold in Canada. He is probably doing everyone a favor staying out of the harbor.

Re: Jerk of the Week?

Not cool. It's a marked swim area. Don't be arrogant. Plus, there's no way of knowing that there *won't* be swimmers even if it is the end of the season.
