The following posts were split from "Inconsiderate Boaters" because the thread topic changed. I think about 75% of people who have boats, power or sail, have never seen the Rules, have no consideration for anyone else, anywhere else, and have little or no clue about boating. as much as I hate blow boaters seemingly ( to me ) tacking across my bow unnecessarily, I still back down and pass with an idle wake. I refrain from glaring or " saluting" as it would show how classless I really am. I figure they are just as ignorant as the nit wit power boater that comes through a narrow channel at full bore. All in all, I will not trade in my boat just because there are inconsiderate dingleberry's that also own boats, I will weigh anchor and move on.
