Nothing like being made to do the "Bayliner Be-Bop" after they roar past you on the half-step mere seconds after you finally got enough boat speed to have some steerage back from the last one that went by...
The lighter the air the closer they seem to like to pass.
But worst still are the harbour speed limit ignorers... their wakes and wash can and have done major damage to boats and docks. Holding them responsible for their actions, even if/when provided by law, is very tough to do.
