Every day occurence on the river around here. It seems that more and more folks want to play in the main channel at the busiest part of the day. Weaving back and forth across the channel causing all sorts of problems.
Last weekend we were going to pass a couple pulling some children on a tube. I gave a horn blast to try and advise them of my intentions. Just as I was getting up along side them, the driver cut right across my path. I had to quickly back off and make a pretty hard turn to avoid the tube. Had I not been paying attention, I would have killed them.
The guy then has the sack to flip me off? There are plenty of larger coves around the area to take this kind of thing. Why people want to endanger their kids by doing it in the channel during the busiest part of the weekend is beyond me.
