Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

There's someone in one of the marinas near me who plays the bagpipes at sunset. Fortunately, he's good.

I'd rather hear bagpipes than the silly cannons some people think are so cool. Not good for those of us who have been shot at.

We might shoot back.

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

Have two zones to sound system. Run zone inside boat when in marina and on shore power. Hull is insulated and with AC on and companion way closed you can't hear willie or Wagner standing on deck of boat let alone next slip. Days without tunes would suck.
On anchor if solar/wind doesn't keep up run diesel genset or lose all the veggies and meat. Then may run cockpit speakers if anchorage is empty.
Don't see the difference between TV or movie and music. In all cases sail through the world without annoying others is just the right thing to do.
Occasionally will have cockpit party. Then music is loud sometimes. But stop at 9 and usually slip mates are at party anyway.

Great advise. And if you don't have a young woman readily available it has been known to work if you just ask a few if they want to go back to your boat and check out your sound system.

It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.

It is no doubt that you misread the situation completely.
He obviously didn't want to be "alone" with his wife.
He parked next to you when he didn't have to and invited you over by sharing his music. He no doubt would have shared his liquor and everything else. You were just too dense to pick up on the invitation.

Donna, I'm on a roll. What is it with this thread?

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

Gary-
Be careful with Ryobi. Last I knew they were pretty much an exclusive to Home Depot, direct from China.
A friend of mine had bought a Ryobi drill kit at HD. Can't beat the price, to be sure. Except, it turned out that a year or so later, the trigger switch broke. Barely used, maybe 20 minutes in all, like most small home drills. But the plastic molding for the trigger switch was flawed and let go. No plastic bit, no switch, no drill.
And those switches used to be a dollar part, OK, now they're a five dollar part, but there still are standard switches from all the electronic houses, and all the tool companies sell replacement parts, right?
Nope. Ryobi makes their own special parts to save money, and (at least then) DID NOT HAVE ANY REPAIR OR PARTS PROGRAM AT ALL. They said, sorry, throw it out and buy a whole new kit.
I said you've got to be kidding, ten cents worth of plastic and throw a whole drill kit out to replace it all? Eventually, a sensible manager at Ryobi got permission to simply replace the whole kit, gratis. But that's not going to be done for the average customer.
So while I give that manager kudos, I've avoided Ryobi like the plague. I want "real stuff" from a real company with real repair programs, I don't want to hear about ordering all new stuff from China.
And if that genset is designed for the typical HD consumer? Don't expect it to stand up in heavy long-term use. It turns out "consumer" drills are designed to be used for about three hours, total time, over the life of the tool. "Consumer grade", beware.

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

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

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

I live at my marina. I rock my boat and the neighbors and if they don't like it they can shift to their anchor (where they should be on a weekend).

Just kidding folks. Music should be like children, not heard unless you want to.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
