Kids/college kids would get a pass from me. Sure, I'd let it know it's absolutely not ok but they're just being dumb. Finding a 40 year old man on the bow of my boat would be a different story.

Not on my boat, but on my motorcycles it happened a few times. Completely blew me away people felt the right to sit on my bikes.

Yes, we were in Murrell's Inlet for the week of July 4th and had walked to one of the restaurants on the boardwalk. Gone for a little over an hour and came back t find these two on the bow. I said "hey, pose for me" they did and I snapped a pic. Then I asked them to get off the boat. Walked inside and found 3 more down below walking around checking things out. I asked them to leave also.

I don't think any of them thought anything about the fact they were on someones else's property or were trespassing.

Only young kids trying to steal beer out of the cooler.

Yep - twice. The first time bandit left nothing but scales in the minnow bucket (did not see him/her). The second time I purchased rat shot so I wouldn't have to chance a ricochet in the marina due to a big old cottonmouth (followed him/her around for 45 minutes before I could get a decent shot).

We've had it happen a few times, we frequently keep the boat at a waterfront park. One particular incident was funny because these people did a selfie on our boat, then posted it to social media and got crucified because people recognized whose boat they were on. We also frequently get people asking if they can get a picture of their kids on the boat.

Never on the boat, but I have come out of the grocery store on multiple occasions to find someone putting there child on my motorcycle to take a picture.

Downtown Tampa, at the marina, we were sleeping on the boat and felt the boat rock. My wife was sleeping closest to the companionway door felt it too. with guns right next to both of us she grabs hers, opens the door and asked what are you doing on our boat. Right behind her I'm pushing my way up the steps and it's 2 couples that left the downtown night life walking the docks and getting on boats posing to take selfies. Its a good way to get shot....

Collage is like a collection, often of pictures or such. (pretty much irrelevant to the situation, but you brought it up a couple times)
They were clearly making a college collage.

I’ve had guests that I didn’t invite come with people I did invite. Showed up with a dog and bitched when they wouldn’t let us in the bar with the dog. Good friend so he gets a pass.

Those 2 can trespass on my boat anytime they want. Anytime.

I was in a pre-married, pre-kiddo age

Had a nice boat tied-up while I was eating lunch at a restaurant in Ocean City. Come back to find a pair of 20-something girls on the boat in bikini tops and jean shorts drinking beer. Cute as hell (most are at 20-something). Fortunately I saw them on the boat from 100 yards away so I had time to control my initial anger and formulate a plan.

Got to the boat. Untied. Jumped in. Said hello. Turned the key and off we went. Two girls. A few of their beers. And an afternoon to kill in OCMD. A few beer turned into a pit-stop for a few more. Skinny-dipping at sunset was fun. One girl wanted to go back. The prettier of the 2 stayed. Finally took her home/her car around 3am.

Good times

Years ago at wappoo cut in Charleston. A friday 7amish I am coming back to the dock after parking truck. Some meth-head / stoned female with hollow eyes getting on my boat. My father, who is on the boat waiting on me is just looking at her.
I jog down and leave the boat tied...tell her she must have boarded the wrong boat (there is one other boat tied up with a solo.)
Junkies reply was "no, just need you to drop me off on other side of the river because the bridge is up" The bridge was up.
If you know the area there is no other side of the river she was pointing at to drop anyone off.
I told her that is not happening she can keep walking after the bridge opens.
Junkie tells me it is too dangerous to walk and she needs to go to one of the apartments across the the river......that all I have to do is blah blah blah..there is no dock and these apartments are abandoned, btw.

I tell junkie to get the f off my boat...she gets crazy eyes and reaches for the line tied to the dock. I tell my dad to call 911 (he doesn't...still just staring), grab the line from her. Junkie starts crying and says she will do anything for ride across the river. Junkie curses, yells, cries, tells me how awful I am and puts one leg on dock while second still on bow....some more yelling and then just sits on the dock.
More people are there now backing down staring, wondering wtf?

We caught a few flounder that day.

Should have really called 911, but didnt want to burn 2 hours dealing with that bs.
