Re: dnf because of county police boat?
OK, I was not gonna reply to this thread again, but here I go....
Racers tend to bear down on other people, getting all to close and leaving one to wonder if it's not time for radical evasive action. Racers expect right-of-way just because they are racing.
Racing means nothing to those who are not in the race. Often non-racers show them courtesy just because. Most of the time they get more than they deserve and give little to nothing in return when it comes to courtesy.
Speak up if you haven't heard the "HEY! WE ARE RACING YA KNOW!" line from someone expecting you to move out of their way just because.
Speak up if you haven't shown some racers courtesy by letting them all pass or taking the long way around even though you have right of way only to get dirty looks from them for messing up their air.

I know, it's not all of them, but the very loud minority make a lot of noise.
