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 .
