Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

Welsh - I'm just trying to figure out why the hell you have to look at every freakin' boat that passes you by (obviously with pathetic kitten eyes) making them feel compelled to wave. Mind your own damn business and watch where you're going.

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

Hey Fwman. I'm a contractor who leaves P.S. every morning at 7 and after working at cottages [mostly down the south channel] I return at about 6:00 p.m.. I'm one of those guys in the ugly, though functional aluminum barges. I'm with you all the way. Recently I've been subjected to a new circle. My daughter is home and has been borrowing the truck that I usually take to the marina in the morning , leaving me to ride my kawasaki and forcing me to participate in the ' loyal order of low wavers' ritual practiced by every one that ever saved enough money to buy a motorbike. The strange part is that I have a burning desire to wave to only those who don't wave to me , for they are true kindred spirits !
We keep our sailboat a little further north in Britt. A LOT quieter up there and just as many sailing/mooring oportunities .
If I passed by you on the channel and waved , rest assured it was only because you had your sails up. I don't wave at " cruisers with sticks".
To all others : I or my employees help out ,on average, about 7 or 8 boaters in need per season. We've never charged for this because someday we are going to need help. Wave if you need it .
Jeff

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

Well never mind waving.....LEts talk trolling sinkers 4 oz is my fav and a wrist rocket

So when some idiot wants to know why i am going so slow and what those 4 lines running out from my stern are and he crosses my stern at 20 knots and waves at the whole crew on my boat thats waving at him

Also all water fleas (waverunners) are fair game for the wrist rocket

I get not waving, but if I say hello to someone and they ignore me I am inclined to knock them flat on their ass. The same feeling carries over on the water. I'm not really an angry guy, am I, LOL? Common courtesy goes a long way.
^This is really the best post so far.

Reciprocate my courtesy or I'll kick your ass.

Well done sir.

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

My fellow Taffy,

I won't stop waving, I like the waving. It's a fraternity thing. I used to drive ambulance and we waved at all cops firefighters and ambulances. Every notice that motorcyclists always wave at each other? Even a grizzled Harley rider and a sport-bike teen will exchange a hand in fraternity.

If you like, just for you, I'll withhold 4 of the fingers when your boat passes by mine. Hehe.

By the way, it looks like they made this TV add just for you....

I bet I've passed you in your Stanley a few times. All you guys wear those headsets and none of you ever wave!

I like that!

I don't give you a widdle wavey wavey and you get all huffy? Won't help a fellah out? 'cause I didn't waggle my fingers at you?

Oh, very mature!
