Default Things people do on your boat that piss you off

Over on the Formula thread we were discussing bimini top storage (or lack thereof). The top on my 311 has to lay on the sun pad. It really pisses me off when other people get on or off the boat and lean, kneel or sit on my top!!!!!!!! Maybe I'm a bit anal, but some things just cannot go on without my less than friendly input toward the offender. Its usually the non-boater types that do this chit.

Lets see what bugs the rest of you. We all have some things that happen onboard that we just have to make a scene about. Its uncool, but necessary. Lets here it, it'll be fun to see what bugs you!!

I drives me crazy when they insist on bringing "umbrella" drinks on board. Or wear dirty shoes. Or just throw their stuff anywhere.
Retired! Boating full-time now.

How about when they don't offer a penny for gas!

Shoes...banned. Dorittos or any other crap that comes off on your hand...banned. Stepping on the seat first and not using the sunpad ( you know jumping from the dock to the seat) banned. Any open drink while at speed...banned.

Acres of deck everywhere and they have to (with full body weight) stand/stomp/jump on etc the frail lexan deck hatches...Too many others to list but that's one of my favourites.

wave at the blow boaters

the rule is we don't wave unless it looks like they will wave back. If they don't have an open mind about boating then they need to go back to the docks. I personally sail and it is hard to admit on here. But there are many blowboater who accept the fact that there are other lifestyles.

I hate it when they sail through channels though and think they have the right of way.

As far as rules for the boat, I am disgueted now that I sold the boat to my step dad.... he is going to destroy it, with all the spilt drinks and shoe scuff marks all on the bow... It is frusterating just going boating with him.

Shoes. People who try to get on your boat with shoes on. I would never wear shoes on anyone's boat and I expect that from people on mine.
Heck I even took my shoes off in the middle of Feb. in Nebraska with snow on the ground to look at the Baja before buying it...ask Griff. My piggies were like ice when it was all said and done.

And people who smoke on the boat or smoke as they are crossing the boat or flick their ashes between the boat into the water.

How about when your docking and your buddies just sit there and make you do all the work. Or when they offer to get the gas bill and hand you a 20.00 .
