we know we are starting to get old when we start questioning the actions of people in their teens and 20s

Here on the water In Miami it’s 90 percent Hispanics blasting reggaeton and generally not giving a shit about any one else, just like on land. Not to say they are all
inconsiderate dickheads, but it’s definitely a large majority.

We learned to love music where the words meant something. It's all still playing today. Because it comes from talent. We closed the windows so we could keep the sound inside even when we had Quadraphonic Stereo, Better speakers and 8 track tapes. Today the population is over 7.5 billion. We can do without the stupid, the lazy, the selfish, the thieves and ALL the no talent noise you think the rest of us must hear from your pathetic wasted lives. I knew people who were my equals or better as far as what they had to start with but wasted their whole lives on pot and other drugs. Nothing worth having in my lifetime ever came out of a joint, a bong, a line or a needle. Especially in the area of music your generation dropped the ball. Nobody will remember you. Maybe that's why you think you need to play it so loud now.
What a curmudgeon. Let me know where you're fishing so I can run just ahead of you with the rear towers on blast.

Yes.. bad rap is blasted loudly and annoys everyone who is forced to hear that garbage and good rap is played through headphones.

I will never understand a "sport" that seeks out the cleanest, most tranquil water around, then makes a noisy mess out of it.

On the flip side, I am in the alternator business, and the hot rod alternators that some of these guys are running to push all that stuff bring close to a grand a piece. So there's that.
The piddly 80w alternator on my yanmar costs $1200 new. I can't even remember the last time I heard the music from another boat though.

I too am getting old (47). Don't get me wrong, I love to crank some metal. But I also realize that it's not for everyone. As far as a boat stereo, I had one and removed all of it. To me it's just extra wiring I have to worry about and deal with. Everyone always has a cell phone, so I just take a small bluetooth speaker. Then when we're parked we can play some music if we want. It's loud enough to add some mood, yet quiet enough so the guy parked fifty feet away isn't going to hear much, if anything. Works for me.

Im one to believe that there is a place and a time for everything. At the sandbar, on Saturday afternoon, with a whole bunch of ladies drinking fruity drinks and having a good time my radio might be pretty loud if the people around are enjoying it, if we just caught our limit of specks and have an hour and a half ride back to the dock and are feeling like it we'll crank the radio up. If we are coming in during an offshore tournament with a winning fish (or not), the radio is going to be a little loud. But to each his own. Im not going to pull up next to you fishing and turn the radio up. Im not looking the other way on anyone, no matter how big of a douche they are.

I to have one of these "systems". I have been in the 12v industry for many years and do enjoy listening to what I consider good music at a loud volume. I am also courteous to others around me and turn it down when close to other boaters. There are three of us with systems that I have done that we will tie all of our boats together and listen to the same music. This is accomplished with a transmitter/receiver that is sold by Wetsounds. It eliminates having different boats playing different stations which is most aggravating. At 50 I still enjoy loud music but not to the extent that I annoy my fellow boaters.

Thefool808 makes a great poimt. If you want to play your music loud enough to blast out your ear drums THEN PUT ON SOME EAR PHONES and that would make everyone happy including yourself!!!

When we anchored yesterday there were no boats closer than 100yds. When we left because there were three boats within 100ft all blasting different kinds of music. I think the older generation brought this on ourselves by raising our kids to think they are the center of the universe.

I wish someone would invent waterproof ear buds so that everybody could listen to the music they like and as loud as they want without disturbing others. Oh wait, they're $11 at Walmart.....

Go home and burn 75% of your music collection because without drugs a lot of that never happens.

And donít spew some BS about how the music you listen to is different. I donít care if itís Jazz, early rock whatever, drugs played an important role.

Just once I wish my quiet would really bother someone trying to enjoy a loud evening.

Or any three of the four combined! mmmmmm, maybe all four combined.

I would say that the vast majority of the high end fishing CC builds on the site feature a big JL or Wetsounds system. That tells me it's not just a bunch of inconsiderate punk kids.

Thereís plenty of good talent and music these days. You just have to find it. Radio and a lot of entertainment is bought out and itís not like it used to be when they played talent. Now itís just big satellite stations filtered to all of the local stations telling you what you should like, making it digestible to as many people as possible, selling as much if it as they can and moving on to the next. You canít blame a generation for that.
