One of my current customers was going on and on about the loud boats up at Lake Winni. the other day. How obnoxious we are and what not. He must have forgotten that I own one. I let him go on and on and then he said how bad of boaters we are. I stopped him right there and informed him that most of us are more rounded boaters then anyone on the water. Put me in any boat and I will get it going, most sailers would not even know how to start one of our boats. At any rate this summer we now have a race set up. Two sailboats of the same model. Him and his buddy against me and my brother. He is going to loose bad, my brother was on the Olympic sailing team and I aint so bad myself!

Yes, my boat's loud but what do people expect when they live on an all sports lake? Especially one with a history of attracting performance boats. The real fun in Michigan is on the Great Lakes though and I don't have to worry about disturbing anyone's "peace & quiet". lol
Did you take your boat out and rip up and down the lake till midnight after this?

Agree with everything said. Funny about the applause when shutting down. Happens alot. Too funny, I sometimes just fire back up and let all 3 run for another minute or so. But its ok for the bikes out in front of the place to rev up and idle. Thats ok ? WTF ? Its ok for the rag fliers to have chit beating & clanging on their metal mast in the wind or breeze all day when your tied up somewhere, and thats not anoying whens its 24/7 ?

Only prob is, if there is a HOA or condo association, they can make things rough on the guy, as they will induce selective prosecution on him for or of the Condo or HOA regs or could even add in a noise ordnance for the property. Cant please everyone, no matter how hard you may try or how far you go out of your way to.

Back in the day, my parents had a pain in the azz neighbor. Tried being nice to them, and they still were a pain the azz. So my dad had a decent speaker system outside the house for his stereo system, so he would turn and direct the speakers ( actually bull horns, this was in the 70's ) at their house and put on nursury rhymes and the ABC song and let it play for extended periods. They soon got the message, and started to be decent.

Be nice, then if that fails, show them how much worse it can be, then try to keep it as quiet as possible.

I had a neighbor that would whine about the noise when I would flush the engines, that it was too loud and would shake the walls in their house. I would only flush mid day to early afternoons. They would come out and scream about the noise. Told them I was being decent about it with the times for flushing and I could make it worse. Most times even used the switchable muffler tips. Guess what, repositoned the boat towards their place, hooked up more hoses to run all the engines, then fired them all up and let them run, with a few good rev tunes in between. They got the message and never said anything again.

No, I've been boating on this lake for 20 years or so and there is no sense in becoming the local idiot just to antagonize one new neighbor. Besides, I think he's getting used to it. There have been no more problems. I just think that if he wants "peace & quiet" that he should not live on an all sports lake......or next to an airport or race track or firing range.......

To an extent. There are a few idiots out there. Also the turn downs aren't for me because I love the sound of the unmuffled 525 idling and the real decibels are when I'm up and running. I do have Q&Q for idling through a marina or yacht club where I know the sweet music won't be appreciated. I can't use it on plane with the 525 though.
