Default Female Water Taxi Captains Dangerous?

Outgoing tide running a strong 4+ knots with blustery beam winds between Andrews and 3rd AVenue bridge. Heavy boat traffic both ways. Im running minimum steering speed around 5-6 kn making SOG around 10 kn. Water Taxi coming up river barely making headway with a 30* port list with every pax gawking out the port side with the captain. Captain Shriek begins hollering at me to slow down before i kill all the manatees! Captain Shriek is oblivious to the boats trying to pass her going up river as she is a hazard to navigation, causing a major scene and hindering safe navigation.

I propose the removal of female captains from commercial operation and the removal of all manatees from east coast waters. Manatees belong on the Gulf coast. I’m open to other solutions so lets hear them...

Why not call the company she works for and report her?

Reported, all of you








but really, manatee tastes like a combination of beef and alligator, pretty good eats, it ain't that bad if you hit one at slow speeds generally won't tear up your boat and you wound them enough, stunned even that you can finish them off with your spear gun or marine grade mossberg
