    Angry Boater Stories

    Decided to make a thread dedicated to times when boaters have yelled at you, maybe obscene gestures, etc. I want to hear everyones stories. Ill start with mine lol
    So over memorial weekend a buddy of mine and I were riding the north end of lake havasu. Now for you east coasters out there lake havasu is A ZOO on holiday weekends. Everytime I go out there, I ride inside this particular cove. Mind you this is not a no wake cove and it is rather wide and deep (distance wise) people like to go in and put on music in the boat and drink, kids jump off rocks, fish, just an all around good time. There were a lot of people in this cove when my buddy and I went in it, we decided to stay towards the mouth of it to be respectful of the people around us. The closest boat was roughy ~45 yards away. they had two small children in the water, (I saw them almost immediately upon entering) so my buddy and I begin riding hard. Trying to carve hard and spray each other, subs, power slides, just "vintage fun" my buddy flips his ski upside down and it began taking on water pretty bad so i pull him to shore so we can take off his hood and assess the damage. We get to the shore and this guy comes over (from the closest boat) in his boat and starts screaming some choice words and saying "how'd you like it if i did donuts around you while you were working. I have kids in the water and you guys are being disrespectful, get your POS jetskis out of here." then pulls away. I was left in shock but fired my ski up and kept riding lol.

    Lets hear em boys and girls.

    Fish -n- ski boat with about a mile of towrope pulling some kids on a tube. Cuts me off coming out of a cove. I have to come to a complete stop and wait for the damn rope to go by with the tube. Dude is giving me the eat **** look. So I get up on the ski and do the ole two hand california howdy in my best semi amature wrestler dude pose.

    i told him to fvck off and go show off in front of someone the may be impressed, he persisted to come withing 3 feet of my boat ,so
    i took the rego and a vid and sent it off to marine safety,no doubt the fine would have been in the 3-4 hundred mark , thattle learn him to be a little more respectful in the future............

    Re: Angry Boater Stories

    No good deed goes unpunished. True story--Late last season I was out one weekend on my SXR and I noticed a young woman riding a 650sx on her knees in the tray. I has seen some kids trying to ride this ski all summer and had stopped and given some advice on how to ride on many occasions. So I slowed down and ran beside the young woman, about 20 feet away, and was showing her how to push down on the handle to stand up. Unknown to me her boyfriend was having a melt down on the shore and got into a 20 ft bowrider and was full throttle straight at me. I just happen to see him at the last moment and was able to hard trottle out of the way. As he passed me he was in the bow of the boat sceaming at me alone with the boat throttle full on and no one at the helm. When he got control of the boat I went up beside him to ask WTF and he said I was being unsafe. I was speechless, The only response I had was that the only person being unsafe here is you and that I promise I will never help anyone on that ski ever again. I now allways have my GoPro on while riding.

    I was riding on the Elk River in MD. It was real choppy out so I was only going about 25 to 30 mph and I was trying to get to Cpt Joh's cove. From behind a (approx) 32ft Baja passes by me with in about 30 ft and flicked me off.

    I jumped the *** of 4 on sit downs crossing back and forth in front of our cruiser. It can be annoying when they are seeing how close they can get to ur 400,000$ boat. It's like playing chicken with a train, cause that thing ain't dodging anything

It's like playing chicken with a train, cause they don't want me doing this in front of their children
    Just....wow.

    I don't pay attention to people in boats, I just jump their wake. They might be angry, maybe not. Doesn't matter at all as I'm having fun and not hurting or endangering anyone regardless of their usually incorrect opinion.
