The Marina is Westshore Marina. I donít know what Yacht Club it was only that it wasnít the Gig Harbor Yacht Club or the Tacoma Yacht Club. I didnít recognize the Burgee.

Mr. Pusher isnít a member of any Yacht Club (I assume). He is just some old guy living on his sailboat with his cat. He is loud and profane, but I think that he certainly understands that his pushing was out of line and dangerous. He did thank me after all for speaking to him as I did when it happened.

BTW, there are two public docks in the harbor that the boaters could have taken their garbage to and disposed of it there.

I just donít understand why boaters canít be a bit more responsible.

I just don't understand why people can't be a bit more responsible. Boaters don't have the market cornered.

There's more than a few stereotypes of 'sailors being cheap'. They're glad to brag about how cheaply or freely they got something and can squeeze a nickel so hard you can practically hear Jefferson scream. But someone else taking advantage of something they pay for? OUTRAGE!

Some folks are never going to be happy. Some folks are never going to take the tranquility of others into account. Seems like plenty of both there...
