Several years ago, when traveling on the ICW, on a weekend (which we normally try to avoid) a big tuna tower fishing boat came by us on the Cape Fear river (lots of room to pass) and he chose to go about ten feet from us putting out a huge wake - enough that it swamped the dinghy we were towing.
Of course, we responded on the radio, only to hear, "Wah, wah,wah, you crybaby sailboaters should just stay home if you can't take a little wave."
He continued on ahead of us, doing the same thing, and we kept hearing the same response, until some brave tiny-voiced woman came on the radio and said calmly, "The bigger the wake, the smaller the penis." It shut him up. We never heard him again or any complaints about him. We almost fell over laughing and I still chuckle today about it.
We have had similar problems in Florida so often that if at all possible, on weekends we just drop anchor up some quiet creek somewhere and wait until the gassholes go home.
