I understand but that's like buying a house near the air port or race track, and complaining about the noise. Or buying a house near a dump, and complaining about the smell. Or buying a house near a bar and complaining about the drunks @ 2am. Or buying a house in a school zone and complaing about traffic when kids are going to and from school or complaining that the band at football games and the fans cheering are too loud. And persoanlly, I really don't care how much you bought your house for. When one buys a house on the water, they should already know that there will be things about having a house on the water they will not like, and noise from loud boats is just one of those things they will just have to get over.

Where I live, my backyard is adjacent to the town park, yeah at time the park is loud, the swings are approx 10-15' from the fence. But what .... I'm gonna yell at kids to keep it down and and not enjoy themselves. What have I learned? In the next house I live, DO NOT LIVE NEAR A PARK!

Next thing people are gonna start complaining about the noise that deisel trucks make. And why not, more and more of them are being used as daily drivers.

I am running 525's with slip in silencers and people still occaisionaly clap when I dock and I am below any legal limit in FL.

And another thing ............

I do believe that the entire noise thing is somewhat unresolved. And feel free to correct me if I'm wrong (I know someone will.) But didn't they deem that to take an acurrate deciblie reading the boat has to be docked. So pretty much they only have to "SEE" the muffler on the boat. Which someone could make MUFFLER, hollow it out, and appear to have muffler. It's just food for thought.

Yup, you got a speed boat, so they will. They really have no idea what the difference between normal, loud and excessive is.

What if you bought a house or condo on the water or a lake long before everybody decided to buy a performance boat with the opitional 800's with open headers.It goes back to the few ruining it for the many.Meaning the excessivly loud boats ruining it for the considerate performance boaters.
I love the sound of performance,just not all the time in my own backyard.
By the way i did not move next to a biker bar ,I was there long before they were.

That's why people move to different areas. If you are not happy with your surroundings, get out.

Originally I'm from Brooklyn. (Mill Basin area) Growing up this area was considered a nice neighborhood. You couldn't pay me enough to live there now. It's a sh!t hole compare to were I live in NJ. But when we moved here it was rural, and we had horse farms and woods. Closest store was just under 1 mile. Now it's like living out in Long Island and conjested as hell. Things change.
And besides, if I was still in my 20s, I'd probably like living near a bar. (I also like bikes too) You'd be amazed at some of the homes these 'bikers' own, and how much $ they really have.

I'm not saying all bikers are trash,I live in Naples most of the bikers here have more money that god,I'm just saying the arrongance of "If you don't like it phuck you and you oughta move" is not going to win you any supporters against the masses.I will repeat I love the sound of a performance boat when it's roaring offshore but I don't get the rev-offs of open pipe harleys at every stoplight they come up to.And i see it plenty.

I agree with you to an extent. But that's the way things are. It's the same with a suped up car. Just about every light that car comes to, the guy usually revs it. But is the same weather one has a mustang, a rice burner, a harley, a crotch-rocket and a boat. Personally, if I had my way, I'd be driving a Harley to work and the boat on the weekends. I find silence deafening. To each is own.

A more appropriate analogy would be buying a house near a road, expecting traffic.... but one day someone invents the Jake Brake.

Huge waves are a problem on ourlake....the ones created by large searay etc. boats. I would say "as soon as you mind your wake, i will mind my noise." The waves break docks for gods sake, and my little boat just sounds good.
