I hear you loud and clear. Where I boat, in southern NJ, at mid tide and lower, there is not a lot of water, except in the channel. Of course, the fishermen are either trolling, or anchored right in the middle of the channel that is only 30 feet across, and they get all pissy when you go by in your "loud HP boat". Get the #$#@ out of the middle of the channel. But you have to be cool, as these type of boaters love to label us HP boaters as the bad boys on the waterways, yet we drink our beer when the boat is on the trailer, washing it off, and those guys drink their beer "all day long while they are fishing, and wonder why they can't find the dock.
