Default Worst boating trend in recent memory?

What is the absolute worst trend you have seen in boating over the decades? Include topics such as fishing gear, boating designs, power trends, recreational trends, etc...
Anything related to boating where when you see it.....it leaves you irate or simply shaking your head....

OK, Ill play... I always get a chuckle when guys start arguing about whose cooler is better and whose cooler holds ice the longest and if they advertise 7 days and it only holds it for 6 the cooler is a piece of sh_t... Seriously... Go get more ice or stay the hell out of the cooler for "just one more beer"

EDIT: Or buy a real cooler like a Frigid Rigid Just saying...

Massive stereo systems This probably one of the worst .I listen to a bit of everything but you know what if I feel like a slow relaxing day i dont want to listen to your death metal. Other than that roof mounted LED bars they go all way around The roof and are so bright you blind oncoming boaters. I have headlights that are led's on mine but I always point them down at the water far out so the not reflecting nor they blasting in people's face.

Outboard motors that still look pretty much like they did in 1995.

Joy sticks on boats too small to need one if the operator has any clue at all what he is doing
