I dont think anyone would slate what you say at all.
There are idiots galore around but some are more idiotic than others and show no common decency or respect. And its not restricted to boat owners and users whether they be sail boats or powerboats..
Today, sat at traffic lights a car driver ignorant to the fact the lights were green. Why? Using the mobile phone... Illegal, ignorant, selfish, dangerous.. Until they kill someone or realise the consequences of their actions then nothing will change.
WAFI's quaffng vino whilst hiding behind bed sheets, ignorant of anchored boats ropes.. Ignorant, selfish, inconsiderate and morons..
Equally powerboaters.. Passing in front of WAFI's, sitting on tails entering ports, anchoring close to others, (Potters catching anchor ropes). Ignorant, inconsiderate, moronic..
 
Doubtless we are all guilty of moronic, inconsiderate, selfish illegal actions at some time, but its about trying to pre-empt the consequences of ones actions...
 
Similar to the moronic selfish a***holes who park on yellow hatched lines on garages..
 
O yes indeed.. we are never that far from a***holes...

I think it all needs taking with a pinch of salt. Whenever peeps have a differing view point then banter will occur. Ninety percent of it is just that - banter.

WAFIS will sl*g PAFIS and vice versa, whatever appears on a motorboat forum will also appear on a yachting forum from an opposite viewpoint.

When I did my RYA courses there were students form both camps and the pee taking was just as rife as on any forum.

It is the gang culture that prevails whether it be football, boating or anything else. My gang is bigger than your gang so therefore must be better.

Lets all just chill and love one another!!!

Im with wetwheels 100%!

We are the only civilised country in the world that doesn't have compulsory examinations before you can drive a boat.

I've lived and fished where even to take a 2m row boat to sea on the oars required a licence and boat inspection.

I was examined by Naval Officers before I could go beyond the 6nm limit and when I got my 'unlimited range' licence the examinations were certainly far from easy.

As for UK pleasure boats carrying the full safety equipment, its a complete joke apart from certified charter boats, those from approved schools or the RNLI in my experience.

Now all the non qualified grandads will chuck the brown stuff at me but they know its the truth and it needs to be said.
