Re: Music Etiquette at the Dock

So we sailed from South Haven, Mi to Chicago on Sunday. When we returned to the dock, all of the drunk powerboaters were returning from the playpen. For a while, this one powerboat was blasting Jimmy Buffet so loud that I could enjoy it maybe 5 slips down. Then another sea ray type came in across from him and was jamming their club music. Both boats have amplifiers well in excess of what might be stock on a powerboat. They seemed to get into a battle to see who could blast their music the loudest.

For them, "boating" is driving over to the playpen with a boat full of partiers, drinks, and whatever other substances they enjoy. They usually have the relaxation station inflated. They anchor at the playpen all day and drink, party, and play music as loud as physically possible.

I found it somewhat annoying, but no big deal. That is just how our dock is on a Sunday late afternoon.

My wife plays fiddle, I play 5-string banjo. When we arrive at an anchorage or a new marina nobody minds at all .... until we get out the gas powered air-horn bagpipe and the kettle drum.
