Hell, if i took a video camera out with me, i bet I would have 30 minutes of film by next month. I love the idea about sending it to the news. I guess maybe i sould just sail on the weekdays. I have sailed out of south florida, St. Pete Fl., Newport/East Greenwich RI areas, and NC. Every where i have been minus Miami the vast majority of the people on the water have a sense of pride in their seamanship and are very considerate. I will also say that It is not everyone. I actually had a guy come up next to me in a 20 ft center console after I recieved a 30 knot blow-by from a 50 foot sport fishing boat and ask if i was ok and called the guy a jerk. But, anywhere else i have sailed, i would get annoyed a couple times a year by people, in miami it is a couple times a day. oh well back up north i go.

You see the same kind of thing, particularly with the jet-skis, at the Marine Stadium anchorage on the weekends. Though, the last time I was there, they had two marine police boats there all day Saturday, and they were stopping people.

I think a big part of the problem in Miami is that people with the kind of boats that are inconsiderate, tend to be people with a good chunk of money. This tends to make them feel, if not above the law, at least above the rules of common courtesy, to anything less expensive than what they are in. Much like you see on the roads with people in expensive cars. Please note, this is a general statement, not a blanket one.

NO WAY! Down here we have the 'no retreat' aka 'stand your ground law' you can whack anyone just on principal!

We do let a few live so they can come back and spend money...
