Yes! These people are MORONS

Thses people in their $40k boats who have never owned a boat are a murderer in training!
I have a 15' aluminum v.. It allows me fo fish the shallows of the river,the intracoastal, gig for flounder, and troll the inlet.. Its all I need.. All I want... My son, daughter and I can load up three coolers a day..
I cannot count the times in the past several years that I or my children have almost been injured or worse, by these large boats, running full throttle coming by us (when there is plenty of room) and almost swamping us or throwing one of the children out...
And why? For what?.... Is it intentional or just plain ignorance?
The law says...
If operating a power-driven vessel, you must give way to:
Any vessel not under command, such as an anchored or disabled vessel

This means you jacka$r$es you MUST slow down when approaching close to an anchored vessle which is fishing.

When you take the course... You'll find that out...

Growing up here, my father had a large boat, I never, ever dared going by a smaller boat at a high rate of speed for fear I may harm someone...

As for me?? I am waiting for one of you jerks to swamp me.. YOU ARE LIABLE if negligent (not gross neglifgence.. simply negligent in the manner in which you operate your vessel...

This means if you cause someone so much as a bruise because you are stupid or just mean.. you can be sued...

Maybe if those of us who do boat safely, start suing you all like car drivers do, maybe you will start being a bit more careful and concerned about the lives you endanger on a daily basis... And it's you people who are just as rude at the boat ramps...
You can tell someone, even a teenager who grew up on the water in Wilmington.. How? Theyshow respect to all watercraft.. Why? Because its the correct thing to do...
