It’s the big weekend July 4th, and sadly even though I own 5 boats, and 8 docks, the idea of being out on the water with all the crazy’s is not a good idea. Boating is a calming escape from the crazyness of humanity. And lately it’s gotten a tad crazy out there on the weekends. JET SKI’s Little kids, and new boaters Jet Ski’s. All new to boating, and complete nut jobs going 60 mph in small areas. Mix that in with new boaters, and no way in hell do I want to expose myself or my family to it. And I live in an area that is not crazy. It’s a very quiet town, and older working boaters are great, and the texture that makes this home.
Am I alone in this? Am I just getting cranky and old? Has it always been this way? Is it just our little area is experience growing pains? And I am just noticing it now? One positive thing, is Sweet Pea is large enough that I do feel safe on her chugging along. Until the little ships find our wake and jump it. BTW, that is considered Reckless Driving according to the Marine Police.
If you are an instagramer, follow Qualified Captain, its a never ending ship show of dumb boaters. Boat ramp failures and idiots letting their kids sit on the bows of their boats.
