When my folks were on the fire department they responded to multiple drunks running aground on the rock shelf east of the small island.

I'm assuming they're not on the department anymore. If they were they wouldn't have any peace and quiet these days, they'd be out on calls every other day, all weekend long too, if they were.
$5 is a lot of money if you ain't got it

They self ejected from a stupid fire commissioner. They did thier time for over 10 years... not Many "young" folks up there to join. Mostly pretty long in the tooth, my folks are no exception.

We have our share of idiots up here, too.
We were in a thick fog bank 3 years ago so we were mooching for salmon when out of the back comes two boats on step! Apparently they figured their radar let them see real time. The first swerved and the second one, who was on the ass of the other cut throttle and did the same. We were speechless.

This summer we're anchored between 150-200 ft of water on a point. Lots of room to go around us and others anchored to the north(miles of room) but no, some guides, regular boats and a few commercial have to squirrel their way between the "anchored" on step! I just don't understand.
One day my wife said: is it a rule the bigger the boat the bigger the ass hole?".

Our rule when out on the water is give way, I run most days with lights on unless it's sunny, use horn occasionally at anchor when we see a boat approach and no indication they have seen us. Had a very large seiner heading at us last summer apparently the skipper had it on auto pilot didn't turn until 50-30 yards away. I've got 600' of anchor line with a least 300 out or scope so getting out of the way isn't an option. My wife almost shot a flare at their boat.

Gentlemen, when the enemy is committed to a mistake we must not interrupt him too soon.
