Been cheered for good docking and jeered for being too loud.

I find it funny though that the same azzes who complain about us would never have the ballz to say the same thing to a Harley guy.

The shorts and flip-flops must not look as tough!

Dont get any comments, but get dirty looks occasionally. My 598 with full dry exhaust is pretty deafening from behind. Most of the bars we go to cater to a go fast crowd so it isnt out of the ordinary.

I did have a couple dock hands give me a hard time about a docking job the first weekend i owned the boat, little punks.

Thumbs up

Happens all the time, especially on Holiday Weekends in Havasu.. People just chill at the ramp, and most of the larger cheers are for those who have no idea what they are doing on the ramp...

I can't decide whether its the time at The Rudder in Gloucester, where they have the biggest shimp cocktail in the northeast, when , from what my ex-girlfriend said, the the applause for shutting down was louder than the boat or after drinking too much the night before, I decided to stay over at the town dock In Marblehead Ma and sneak out at sun rise. While leaving a little after 6 a colossal water balloon exploded on my dash, shot from a condo porch 100 feet away. Some race crew on a large sailboat started clapping. To see what the mayhem was about the girl I was with came out of down below with no top on. All the clapping stopped. I thought everyone was jealous. Turns out one of the crew was the girls ex. "Well that explains the bird I just got." Still have not left my boat unattended there.

Great story. -Been years since we've been to the Rudder. I remember Granny rocking the house! Good times.

In 15 yrs of having loud boats its only happened two or three times but I do have si choice in this one.....it's usually the opposite.....one time at a dockside rest we go to we were getting in the boat and some guy yells "Let 'er rip buddy" so I start it up with the si choice on and pull away, its pretty quiet, then another 20ft out I open the pipes for a 10sec prelude then hammer it.....Susi said half the people at the rest were standing and giving thumbs up.
