AUUGGHHH@@!!!!!!! Don't get me started. There's a section of beach (and I'm not tellin' ANYONE where it is) that you can only get to on land by hiking a few miles. My wife and I love this spot, and it's worth the drive and the hike. Pretty much deserted... totally quiet, and everything else that goes along with totally deserted. 'Nuff said..

Once last year when we were there, a dead ringer for the boat SHNOOL posted drives up and anchors about 100' away from us, BLASTING the worst noise (like Gary, as a musician, I can't find much music in hip hop.. last I checked, music usually consists of melody, harmony, and rhythm..... not just one of those). Mr. Mid-Life-Crisis eventually waddled a-shore with his bimbo-du-jour in tow to hang on the beach about 30' feet from us.. even though there was a mile of beach available. Fortunately, he was able to crank up his sound system loud enough so it STILL sounded like we were all on the boat with our heads shoved in the woofers. Goody. Thankfully, that's only happened once, but WHAT IS IT WITH PEOPLE?!?!?? How can anyone be so self-centered?

Now that I've read my post, I can see how it could sound like I was the self-centered person. It's not my beach, I don't own it, and who am I to tell THEM how they should enjoy the beach. Yeah... I can see the other side. I guess I should just say that I can't imagine foisting myself and my taste in music on anyone who's obviously tried to find a place to be alone with his wife. I still think it was rude... but maybe it's just me.

It was extremely rude. Sometimes I think these kind of people are looking for a fight. "Look at me & my $80,000 boat" Mentality level = 5 years old.

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

Interesting unfairness in municipal noise rules is evident here in Toronto where there are many cruise / party boats that cater to companies and groups willing to shell out the $40-50 per person to party on the water.
These boats have HUGE sound systems that even when you are onshore and 5 miles from downtown waterfront (like me) you can hear the thump thump of the bass.
They continue until close to midnight 7 nights a week.
Now if it was me in my home or backyard it is 100% inevitable that the cops are going to come knocking at my door.

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

We use our Bose Soundlink Mini, Bluetoothed to my Acer tablet to play tunes stored.
we sit it just under the sliding hatch which protects it from spray and amplifies the sound a bit. That sound is quality sound though in that the Bose is superb. With a quality sound system you should not have to crank the volume,

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

I agree, Bose is the best of the best. I use all Bose sound systems for my work as a musician/singer, and the quality is unsurpassed.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

I haven't read all of the thread so I'm wodering if any one is playing an instrument on board? I use to play in a dance band in my youth and now many years later I've returned to playing the trombone. Even was good enough after all those non playing years to get into a swing band here in NC . However, I'm land based now and can practice in the house, but should I ever return to living on the boat, I don't know how well that noise will be appreciated.

Unless you're really Joseph Alessi, probably not appreciated very much.

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

I've been thinking of taking up the bagpipes. Wonder how the marina will react to that?

I do have a tiny guitar amp that I just bought - haven't used it on the boat yet. But I plan to turn the autopilot on and play away. Cheapie electrics are much more playable than cheapie acoustics - hence a cheap battery powered amp. I don't think I'll be doing my Joe Satriani impersonation on the docks though - that'd be rude.
