I'm trying to figure out how she could tell.
If you put on your blazer before disembarking your yacht these sorts of things wouldn't happen.

Harumph.

Re: Boat People Scum

Funny how different places have a different view of boat people scum.

Rode over to this hole in the wall bad neighborhood liquor store on my bike the other day here in Gulfport MS. It didn't phase them at all that I rode up on a bike and got a few bottle of cheap alcohol, put them into my backpack and rode off back to the marina. All the bottles were behind the counter and I would point to one and say "I want a bottle of that cheap whiskey." And she would reply "Not cheap whiskey, it's life is good!"

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

The manager of that Waffle House told me to leave and to never come back. And she wasnt very nice about it.


There's a good reason to put ketchup on your eggs there:

Re: Boat People Scum

Always carry a trash bag in your car, truck or boat.
They're sanitary, convenient, take up very little room and when they're full, simply toss them out the window.

Re: Boat People Scum

Iím back in Marathon where boat people scum have many levels. But there is enough land people scum around that it is hard to identify each and we all just into the scum catergory.

There’s a boat people scum boat moored not far from me with kids. I know of boats here that are pissed off that the kids run around on deck playing and swimming a lot making noise. I think that just makes them kids and prefer that to when the parents start screaming at the kids.
