Awesome... but he said marina. That's a mooring field. I don't think I've ever seen a powerboat on a mooring. Too much trouble for the power guys! ;^)That is weird. It must be for the bigger higher spending power boats. New England, coastal Maine especially, sailboats are predominant in most harbors. I hope you find space in a more sailing friendly harbor.
The extension cords out to the mooring are too long. And they get all nasty from the mud and water borne flora and fauna.Awesome... but he said marina. That's a mooring field. I don't think I've ever seen a powerboat on a mooring. Too much trouble for the power guys! ;^)
It's that urge to use the throttle to pass. We do it in our cars, don't we? It has something to do with the throttle that is just in our genes. Do you speed up to merge ahead of the guy in your lane or do you brake to fall in behind when you are getting on the highway? Almost always, I step on the gas to merge in front of, not behind that driver in the lane. I can't stand it if I fall in behind and then the car in front of me is slow, so it's better simply to speed up and get in front. If the guy then has to pass me because I'm too slow, so be it!I don't understand why power boats always have to pass on your bow. Always no matter how fast or where u going. Even when I turn up into them they hard turn across bow. Why
So... you just reminded me of something that I should post to this forum. A very cool way to raise the stick....everyone relies on help from each other... .
A sailor's ghetto! Be happy you're near the other sailors.For some reason they have us all stacked together near the ends of the piers and the marina itself makes most of its money storing and selling power boats
Speaking of ghetto! I do see a few abandoned sailboats at every marina I have ever used. It is always a sad sight, next down the food chain are the neglected houseboats you see at marinas. As a proportion I would say that it is more common to see a neglected houseboat than any other type of boat... luckily their just aren't that many houseboats out there. At my current marina there is one houseboat that has one of its pontoons flooded and is listing dangerously close to a capsize. It threatens to bring the entire dock down with it. Next is the neglected "party barge" and last on the list is the neglected speed boat. You just don't see that many (proportionally speaking) neglected speed boats. So I can really understand why some marina owners might shun the sailboats.A sailor's ghetto! Be happy you're near the other sailors.
My guess is the powerboaters complained about having to walk out so far on the dock.
We keep our sailboat in Buzzard's bay... not too far from the other end of the canal where that picture was taken... quiet residential harbor with no services (no water, no fuel, no nothing... just moorings and a town-maintained dinghy dock)... lots of sailboat there, but we do see that "CRIME PAYS" guy come by from time to time on his way to Kingman's Marina to presumably use their fuel dock and bartender. I have zero desire to be at a slip instead of a mooring... I have zero desire to be at a busy marina instead of a quiet harbor... and I have zero desire to get any closer than necessary to the (presumably) criminal defense lawyer speeding around on that boat.The name of his boat says all I need to know....
