I agree with Gumbydammit in that there really are 2 types of boaters. I have noticed this seperation of classes allot lately in regards to motorcycles. I wave at everyone. My thought is that we are out enjoying similar things just that our machinery is a little different, be it a crotch rocket or a cruiser or Harley, offshore boat, bass boat or sailboat. Doesn't really matter what your on to me I wave at everyone. Same with boats. I use the blowboat nickname as just that a nickname, not as a derogatory meaning. It's unfortunate that so many people (and not just with boats) have become prejudice in there views of others likes and dislikes. Oh well what can you do except control your own actions.
