When we were sailing types, we used to sort of pity those fizz-boat people who from our side of the water seemed to predominantly be the ones who lacked consideration for others, especially sail boat people, and seemed to be less ecologically minded also, when it came to respecting the environment. However, looking back we did not come across trawler type power boats all that much. It was usually the (often trailered), fast planing boat brigade we came in contact with. We were probably mostly wrong then, as motor boat types are mostly wrong in their reverse judgment. I can see that better now having been, (as many of us are/were), in both camps at one time now. Certainly makes one a bit less judgmental.
