Usually somewhere between 70 and 90 they seem to get the death grip on the handles and just shut up

Mine are usually spilling there beer after I just told them that they can NOT hold an open beer while I'm running. Now the next question would be, What is my crew doing when I stop the damn boat?

They are sitting down, AND SHUTTING THE HELL UP.

I can't stand it when someone tries to carry on a full conversation with me while we are underway! I'm driving, leave me alone!

They scream over the engine until I nail it, then they shut-up and hold on.

What's important is that SHE opens her mouth.

All drinks gone,all sit or stand with a grab bar. Both hands free to hold on. I don't like "talking" or yelling, I always think there is something wrong and they are trying to tell me. Screeming is a big one, you screem when you are dieing...not for fun. No one trys to go below, one wave and they are on the floor or hitting their head on something. Just enjoy the ride. I even get things set up with trim an planes, keep it at 3500 and let them take it for a while. I then crawl all over looking for loose stuff and listen to the engines sing. As long as they just steer it is fine. No waves or traffic, just open Lake and they love it.

I just love it when people on the boat want to start a conversation with me when I am docking....especially into a tight spot with a lot of current.
