I love it when a sailboat pulls up next to me in an anchorage (after I have been there for an hour or so) drops the hook way to close to me with no regard to the difference to our swing rates.
Then within 30 min yells over to me that I need to move if the wind changes as I might swing into him, then drops back down into his cave never to be seen again.
Water depth was not a factor.
Perhaps that's when I should have started my gen-set, but I didn't, it's too quite to bother him anyway.
Yep I moved.
I have seen plenty of the "privileged" sail boats, seems theirs is more of a attitude/rudeness rather then the lack of experiences seen in the go fast everywhere set.
Oh well, that's why we have happy hour.
