I mean, I guess Sea Tow or the Coast Guard will eventually get them. Keep on rockin in the free world sir.

I’ll add that I have resigned myself to expect redneckery and other forms of malfeasance on party weekends at various sand bar type spots. It is what it is. It would be great if people respected their peers on the water, but I assume too many don’t think of fellow boaters as peers. There are likely some sharp people out there who can put a system in like some of the ones I hear out there and have them not compromise the rest of the boat, but I bet there are also a lot out there who are pulling a lot of juice and creating a lot of heat. Seems like a bad combo to me.

I just don't get needing music playing at all times, regardless of what you're doing. My boat has a stereo. I almost never turn it on. Just not my thing on the water.

All of you keep talking about the sandbar..... There are people that have no problem turning the stereo to 11, at night, while cruising the Intercoastal. 1...2...3... in the morning, just waking up everyone within blocks of the water. It is incredible when it happens. You can’t help but wonder, what kind of individual thinks that this is OK?

A Drunk?
Some idiot on vacation?
Someone trying to see how many condo and Home lights they can get to go on by waking up all the residents?

I have no idea..... but they better not be dating my daughter! Lol

My favorite is the guy with the big ass yacht that parks it on the bulkhead in No Name Harbor in the state park on Key Biscayne, cranks up the tunes on the external speakers, and then walks away for the afternoon. Love hearing that Hispanic music from hundreds of yards away.

Clearly it's "My taste in music is so much better than yours. Here, let me show you!"

Never did quite understand why people seem to need the music up so loud the people in the next state can hear it, like they think others enjoy their choice in music too.

I'm living close to the lake - some people don't seem to understand how far sound travels over water.. It's a shame..

It's like the internet. Some people think that everyone cares what they have to say about things. News Flash: Nobody cares what you think, just like nobody wants to hear your music. Your opinion sucks and so does your music, but if you must broadcast your cool image all over the place, find an open space with nobody in it so that the rest of us can enjoy the tranquility of the sea without you polluting the area with your personal noise.

My personal favorite at the marina.

Same guys that have obnoxiously loud piped harleys and a cheap tinny stereo blasting.

When I moved back to my home city after finishing college I couldn't find a decent place to rent because a hurricane had just caused damage, so we ended up renting a house in a neighborhood that had some low rent apartments. The idiots who lived (or visited) the apartment across the street would pull up in their cars late at night with their loud music blaring - and would leave it loud. I called the cops so many times they probably knew my voice. On one night, I watched as the cop car drove up to the loud car. Nobody was in it. The fool had went inside with his stereo blasting. The cop found him, made him turn down his stereo and wrote him a ticket.

Another time I was at a boat landing (on an uncrowded weekday) working on a trailer. Someone had a stupid rap song playing on a loop while he was out on his jetski. I was tempted to go to his truck and turn the radio up so loud that it blew the speakers.

Dear Miss Cracker,

I like a sansa with earphones, that way everyone can listen or not listen to what they like.

But I have aquired some new"friends" that want to fish my secret spots along side of me and follow me around on the ocean. They have an old 2 stroke that is loud and really stinks if you are down wind which is all day if you drift fish. They'll only turn the motor off when they want to hear their rap or Mexican Polka tunes.

I'm in a social pickle. What can I do?

Find a graphics shop to make you up some Federales decals for the boat

Not much opinion, lucky where we boat there is so much water and so few boats I have never even heard another stereo.

To the OP's org question, I can't hear 16 over my 2x2-strokes underway anyway

Hang headless chickens over your gunnels. Always worked for me when I lived in Panama.

Bottom line....we all like music.

But if you play your music so loud it can be heard from outside your boat.....you are a d-bag. It's that simple.

I say everyone plays Bikini Kill this weekend. Loud. 90s girl punk could fix all of this.
