I forgot one of my other pet peeves: - People who ridicule other people who honestly answer questions on a web forum!

I, on the other hand, appreciate confirmation (as well as correction).

Pet Peeves? Hmmmmmnm, I guess mine would be when my beer's not cold enough, when the ice in my 'rita has melted or my Tanqueray bottle is empty.

Just kidding. Probably my two biggest are wakeboarders who feel it necessary to do it through the anchorage areas and loud music on boats when everyone is enjoying a quiet day on the water.

Spud guns are the answer to #1. I'm still trying to find the answer to #2.

"Honey, I need more ice please!"

My pet Peeve is the thread titles that give no clue as to the subject of the thread.

Very true!!! I participate in forums where they will delete your thread if the title of your thread is not directly perfectly clear.

I deal with people all over the planet every day at work. I enjoy it but when the work week's over I'm done with it. On weekends and during our time on the boat I don't want to deal with anyone other than a tiny handful of long-time boating friends. I'm not interested in meeting more boaters or talking to boaters or answering inane questions from dock walkers. Fortunately our slip is way out in the marina where few dock walkers ever venture so we see very few of them and the ones who insist on coming up and talking are easy enough to get rid of.

As I've said before we are not social boaters. We did not get into boating to hang around with other boaters. So while we obviously have to share the water with others there's a lot we can do to avoid dealing with them. Most of the places we like to go in the islands and BC are not frequented by crowds of other boaters, which is nice.

Which is why we are not fans of boaters who force their noise and exhaust fumes on everyone else around them.

Will I be able to avoid eye-contact before getting to my SUV?

Just because we have boats and get to a spot first, doesn't mean we own it. Sure, it's the courteous thing for them to find their own spot, but we all know that everyone can, or will, have the same experiences you do that expresses courtesy. Like it or not, we do have to share.

**Oh... And there is SOME good rap. Most is crap, but there is some that's pretty good.**

The ocean is a big place with plenty of room for those that wish to make noise so there is no reason to purposely do it next to others is there?

You have to acquire the same attitude I have, Mark. Eye contact with the people on the docks and in the parking lot is not a problem because they simply don't exist. If you have a dog it can be very helpful because the dog can teach you the art of looking straight through people in such a way that they'll know they're pond scum without you having to tell them.

A cat can teach you, too, but when they look through you it conveys something far more insulting.

Just making sure the irony is not lost here, but power boaters that don't like the sound of a running engine or have thousands posts at a community forum and say they aren't into the social aspect of boating? Am I missing something?

No, the forum is entertainment pure and simple. It's not actual boating. Nor is it social interaction. It's just entertaining interactive typing practice. Big difference between an internet forum and real boating.

Many things are much clearer now.

Funny stuff, Mark!! It's called social media for a reason.

I couldn't imagine boating for solitude alone. Don't get me wrong...I enjoy peace and solitude at times and the company of others as wel. If you don't want people fouling up your plans for floating loneliness, you could stay home in your bathtub and off all social media and accomplish that.

Give me pleasant, courteous folks who share common interests, pleasures and passions anyday!! There are plenty of them here. Sometimes you need to filter through the know-it-alls and social misfits to find them, but it's worth it.

My pet peeve is the couple that's in the next slip to starboard and their incessant love making at all hours of the night. Constant moaning sounds by the guy and the girl has a very high pitched voice. Moan, moan, screech, moan, moan, screech, all night long and then in the morning they both sit in their cockpit in their bathrobes like nothing ever happened! Another thing they do is tie their dock lines too tight so when their boat is rolling with all the action, it pulls on the floating finger that I am tied to and my boat starts rolling! I've talked to them about holding it down but this only serves to spur them on. I swear, some people are very rude!
