A week ago (Monday morning) when we were transiting the C&D canal, a couple of fishermen started chatting away (and dropping f-bombs!) right on Channel 16! I couldn't believe it.

Then there was the French woman who announced to the world that her boat was exiting the C&D canal into the Delaware River. This elicited a bunch of questions from the USCG, trying to figure out what her problem was. The discussion was difficult because the woman spoke very little English. Finally, the USCG guy simply asked, "You are just announcing this, right? There's nothing wrong with your boat?" When she still didn't seem to understand, he finally said "Please switch to 22 alpha." I was curious enough that I switched over too, but she never responded. She probably didn't understand his request.

Did anyone else hear this?

If someone else waves I at least nod or even wave. definitely not all the time and dont feel obligated
Reminds me of when I was in
college and my then girlfriend, now ex-wife from NYC was visiting me in Chicago turned to me and asked if she had something on he face. She was surprised by strangers meeting her eye to eye. She has lightened up a bit.

Re: Most of you know how I feel about waving, right?

if you can see the whites of their eyes, give em a wave. if waved at, return the gesture. it's just polite. some where deep down it makes you feel good.

when i first moved to vermont. it kind of freaked me out a little. everybody waves, walking, cars passing by, etc. now i'm used to it, and find it more weird if someone doesn't return the wave.

riding motorcycles, almost everyone gives a nod/wave. mine is a low handed peace sign. i'm not a hippie, just wanted something different :-)

not sure why i'm even responding to this thread... (read wave back)...

Re: Most of you know how I feel about waving, right?

I'm a frequent waver,- nothing vigorous, just one hand raised. I'm never offended by a lack of response from the "wavee". There should be no pressure to initiate or respond and certainly no offense. It's such a casual acknowledgement and the waver often is not one to notice wether the wavee responds or not!
