God... it makes me glad that I have a shop in a loud commercial area... I can run my air compressor all hours of the day... during the summer... if I got back from the ocean late in the day... I didn't have to worry about disturbing the neighbors backflushing the engines and starting them up.... That is what you have to put up with when you live in a close residential area...

This old lady that lives about 10 house away does nothing but complain about the boat. You can't even see it from her house!! Cops came out twice, first cop talked to about the boat for 45 minutes then left, second cop talked about the boat then asked if I could move it back about 1 foot to get the tongue off the sidewalk. Now the boat was only at the house for couple of days a month, bring it home from the marina to really clean it. Then the county came out because it was parked on the grass it had to go and the next door neighbor said she couldn't see down the street with it parked there and it was blocking the air beetween the houses. (approx 50 feet apart wtf.) But the county was the last straw now I have a extra wide driveway and the boat parked on it year round. And sometimes just to piss them off I drop it just past the sidewalk!!!

Some people !!

I don't like our neighbor either. They complain about everything. We have one of the nicer houses and it's the cleanest! We keep to ourselves. One neighbor complain that our lights are too bright! She said we don't have curtains. GO BUY SOME THEN! She has the dirtiest yard too. A junk car sit out front. Many people have tried to talk to her about it.

What can I do? Who do I contact to get this eye sore gone!

I've rattled my neighbors windows a few times but he never called the cops just complained about the noise. But it's ok for his noise making $hit machine of a dog to bark all day. When I say some thing all I get is "well she's just a dumb animal". Like Hell it's the G.D. dumb owner who has outside from sun up till midnight. I worked midnights for 8 years and in nice weather it was hard to sleep with the windows open
My present boat (Formula) has Silent thunder exhaust so phuque him.He can't complain about that

I'm lucky - my neighbors are cool. I got tanked with friends one night and fired off an engine at 3am. They said they heard it run for 5min or so, then heard a bunch of drunks laughing, and knew it was just me getting hammered.

Neighbors................If they don't like you or your toys tell them to get phucked. If they had any life they could find something to do other than b!tch.

Just remember when your out in your boat they are b!tching at the neighbors on the other side for parking too close to the curb.

Reading all of this makes me glad I'm out in the country. I may not have any access to high-speed internet or cable (I do have a dish for the tube), but there is no substitute for acreage when it comes to privacy and PITA neighbors.
In the words of one of the greatest actors ever, John Wayne (from one of his movies; can't remember which one but I think it was a western...

"The fact you live near me doesn't necessarily make you my neighbor........."
