You know this all depends on how many fingers that the person you are waving at sees!!
They might not think that you are being friendly at all....

I always wave, and this Sunday, someone frantically waved back using both arms. I eased over to the other boat and quickly discovered his mainsail was jammed in the track about halfway up the mast. I dropped my sails, looked at the track and discovered that one of the slides was badly distorted and jammed. I handed him a can of WD-40 with an extended nozzle tube, told him to climb on the boom and see if he could spray the defective slide, which he did. A couple tugs on the halyard and the slide was free enough to allow the sail to be lowered all the way. He thanked me, I raised the sails and continued my trip north.

Sometimes that wave is more than a gesture of friendship,

Gary :cool:

Yeah....in rural areas it's that way too here....folks just wave as they pass. And out on the water, everyone waves. It's just how it's done, people being nice and all. Only a grumpy old hermit arsehole wouldn't wave back.

I guess you're right!

Here's a picture I found of some of that good ol' Texas hospitality:
