Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

Perhaps all these friendly, polite folks that irrate you so are simply reading the name of your boat and responding appropriately. Doesn't nautai te salutamis mean "we sailors salute you" or something like that?

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

When you consider the historical origins of waving (to prove that you are not holding a gun), the OP might consider waving a gun in response to those obnoxious wavers. Or better yet, point it at them. That might get them to stop waving! But YMMV, especially in Canada.

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

OK, now I guess it's my turn to be educated!
I don't quite know when being a douchbag became cool, but if that's the way of things here on sailnet, then I accede to my betters.
I am so confused.......and thanks?

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

surely there are far worse things going on in this world today than people being friendly towards fellow boaters...

Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

I'm sure there are worse things, bcsailor, but you has time to think of them when you are sailing?
