I probably shouldn't admit this but I caught a pwc once or I should say my highly skilled highly paid crew did.
They forgot to bring in the lure coming home one day and just before we got to the bouy evey body started yelling By the time I got everyting pulled back
we had already snatched the afore mentioned wake jumper off his ride and the hook out of him THAT HAD TO HURT. Good thing I hadn,t made it into the pass yet I'd had some esplainin to do. thank God it didnt cut his head off 100 pound mono is pretty unforgiving. turned out just went in and tore out left nice little hole in his arm. I wanted to hang the ski up at the dock and get our picture made with it but he wouldn't let us.

Ouch... but in many cases, those same PWC riders are doing things like wake jumping... and just asking to get nailed... i've spent enough time on the water to know that you really don't have to go looking for trouble... it will find you often enough without any help from you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Other than the noise, it is not the PWC that drive me crazy. Their wake is small. IT IS THE 2.5 MILLION DOLLAR HATTERAS OR HALF MILLION DOLLAR SEA RAY DRIVEN BY PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER HAD A BOAT BEFORE. They come by at a half plane. They cannot see what is in front of them. They will blow by you (only a few feet away) in a no wake zone or down the ICW. Very few show courtesy. I don't know where the rest of the readers reside, but in S Florida, it is Sea Ray and Hatteras heaven. I cannot even imagine the multi-millions of dollars going down the ICW in any given hour.

You will see some of my stuff in Latts & Atts on this. Ruined my day once.

Re: FlyingPig story

Hi, y'all,

I was wandering around trying to find the ad I put up earlier this afternoon, the item having sold, and I tripped on this.

Tripped is right - what a trip!

Anyone who's been on our log's mailing list knows we rebuilt the inside and did some more stuff on the outside, after our return to St. Pete, and then went about cruising again.

A second major refit, not the result of any injury to boat or person, happened recently, and Flying Pig is better than ever.

We did, indeed, get right back on the horse.

But, in the meantime, as I see the thread migrated mostly toward seasickness, we have found that Stugeron, or Cinnazarine, available OTC in all the UK-related countries and perhaps all over the world, other than the US, is amazing.

Non-drowsy, nor vision affecting, Lydia takes one the night before we go, and one a day or so for the first three days, after which she's pretty much over it.

Thanks for the kind words so many years ago.

If you're not up to date, and are interested, click on my yahoo log link in my signature block below, and, for that matter, see what's happened aboard - lots of changes and improvements - since then, too, in the gallery link.
