Re: Boat People Scum

My wife and I were at the bar for Happy Hour yesterday and across the bar heard this women say to her friend "I hate people living out on the boats. They are just scum!"

I kid you not and we don't think she was even talking about us!

It was at the Steak and Lobster and extra funny because she was a tattooed freak we would have thought would be more in touch with scum.

But yeah, between Burdines and the bridge there truly are boat SCUM.

Re: Boat People Scum

I recently learned on the other forum that the real problem with boat scum is ............ ME! Somehow it is my fault some sit at anchor and collect trash all over etc. Apparently the only thing sub-standard about this is my attitude.

So to all the boat scum scum (thats the scum of the standard boat scum) out there; I am sorry! But I am not accepting that just because you are poor that you collect trash all over your boat etc.. take the trash in, remove the 3 dead outboard engine that you have been “fixing” for 5 years, use some of that water you are sitting in a wash your boat to get dirt off t (rain will later rinse the salt off for free), take off that sail that is in tatters as no be believes that means you can sail away, consider jumping in the water a scraping an inch or two of the bottom growth off. Just make an effort to move up to the boat scum group.

Re: Boat People Scum

Here's a thought Don; if it bothers you so much, maybe you should offer to help them. Clearly they don't care, but you do. And since you've clearly got too much free time on your hands anyway , why not put it to good use?

I'm only partly kidding here. I get why you want these "scum" to clean up their act. It reflects poorly on all boaters, and cruisers. And this is what can lead to boater restrictions.

But for whatever reason, these people aren't doing what you think is best, so maybe you should go help them.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Re: Boat People Scum

scum scum aren't going to clean their boat anymore than the land scum scum is going to to pick the trash up in their yard (or call the junk yard to come get that car that has been sitting in the yard for 5 years, which the junk yard will do for free)

Re: Boat People Scum

The liveaboards we have in our area are not very well liked, although I would hesitate to call them "scum", (with one notable exception!) One particular boat is a young family.

The problem is there are so many of them, and they have congregated in our little cove as they have been chased out of other areas. There are limited places to anchor, and they have taken up all those places so there is nowhere for visiting boats to go. This impacts the local businesses that miss out on the summer tourism revenue from the water. There are many users of the Cove in the summer, with kayak rentals, junior sailing, rowing etc and the live aboard clutter causes a lot of congestion.

Another problem is water quality. The Cove does not have good tidal flow, and the fecal coliform count sometimes gets to unsafe levels. I am the first to admit that there are other factors other than boater sewage that can cause this, but the fact remains, most of them never pull up their anchor, so how could they NOT be dumping their sewage in the Cove? They claim they use shore facilities, but I call BS on that. There is no way they dighy to shore and go to the public washrooms on the other side of the park every time someone has to go. Plus, the washrooms are locked after 10pm. What do they do at night? Hold it until morning? Right. They also claim they don't stuff all their garbage in the park garbage cans.

I could go on, but you get the idea. As far as I'm concerned they are squatters, and the sooner they are moved on the better.
