I realize this is getting off the topic of music at the dock, but I just want to defend Ryobi. I realize it ain't Milwaukee, but I've had good luck with Ryobi stuff.
I have a couple Ryobicordless drills that I've used hard for over a decade, including getting dropped in the snow a lot this last winter. My only complaint is that I've had to replace the batteries several times.
I have had a Ryobi circular saw for about fifteen years that sees a lot of use and I haven't had any problems. I keep a sharp blade on it and it does great.
I did burn out the motor on my Ryobi drill press, but that was using a 6" hole saw to cut a piece of G10, which I think is beyond the design limits of that device.
I also have a couple Ryobi sanders, a router, and a jigsaw. No problems at all, although I haven't used these as much as the cordless drills and circular saw.
(Edit: The reason I have soooo much Ryobi stuff? Because The Home Depot has a wedding registry! Get hitched, getchya some tools!
Anyway, back to musical etiquette. When I charter a boat I make it a habit of blasting John Philip Sousa from 3:07am to 3:19am every day, because I think that way the boat owners respect me and know that I'm not just some schuck
