Yeah, the power boaters usually get in my face if I take 10-15 minutes on the ramp. Then they are there for at least a half hour. I then ask if there is anything I can do to help them along. I always make freinds that way
I'm going to take a chance and say a potenitally antagonistic remark here...
At least where I sail and have sailed the typical power boater tends to not understand how thier boat works. They just turn a key and go. The seamanship is lacking. This is indicated by the ever present fender hanging over the side of the boat, the mess of the lines on deck, and the stubborn refusal to follow any right of way rules. I have found a general lack of respect for sail boats.
This said, I do know of many respectful and courteous power boaters but they are usually in the larger cabin boats and tend to be about 50 plus in age.
I'm done hijacking this thread now, back to the rigging discussion.
