The only loudhailer I have on my boat is my sister in law.

Maybe she'll join my son and I this week for a couple boat rides?

70's here this week. California has its fruits and nuts to be sure, but year round shirtsleeve boating is priceless.

Another pet peeve here on TF is that when we click on a thread it frequently takes you to the next to the last page. I start reading and don't realize I'm not on the last page. I frequently unconsciously assume i'm on the last page and the post at the bottom is the last post. Then I make a post and find that there are 10 posts after the one i'm trying to respond to.

I wouldn't like it either, but I think, as long as they are not violating noise ordinances, they have the right to make noise and you have the right to move away if you don't like it.

Our previous slip neighbors were live aboards (and kinda rednecks). The woman insisted on playing that stupid "I'm A Bitch" song and "Friends In Low Places" at full-song on Sunday mornings while she cleaned the boat and showered... It irritated the Pure-T snot outta me... So we left. Problem solved.
We had that problem, so we installed two 100 watt receivers, 4 speaker out side, and played Christain that drowned them out. It do not take long for them to get the idea.

Disclaimer: I am just messing with y'all. My sound system does rock but I am always considerate of the people anchored around me....even in the "loud" anchorages. I will confess to having flushed out my dock neighbor one night...but that was an "exceptional" incident...

Maybe you could use their induced roll to kickstart your own action

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!
This is the best post on this thread IMO - very funny.

that's funny.....I love the sound of a well cared for engines purr. Being sociable has little connection with noisy inconsiderate neighbors on the water. I make noise but would never pull into an anchorage loaded with boats then proceed to play load music and whoop and holler without considering my neighbors first. Would you?. I think all of use are saying is we object to inconsiderate mariners.

Reminds me of the real-life story about the libidinous Finnish couple who "did it" in a railroad car compartment in the middle of the night with other passengers present. (At least one passenger was awake/aware to write of the event.) ... And then there was the old lady aboard a Southern Pacific train on its way to San Francisco in the 1950s when the SP wasn't maintaining its passenger trains. Unable to find an operational women's toilet, she ventured into a men's only to find two guys ... She wrote a letter complaining to SP's management.
