Default speaking of waving

why is everybody so much nicer on the water?.....I would say 80% of the people I pass on the water will wave and I will wave back or vice versa.....but when we are on the highway....hardly anybody waves at each other.....granted you would have one tired arm.....just seems people on the water are more friendly

I wave when I can, but usually I'm trying to hang on to the wheel.....I knew I should have gotten hydraulic steering

I always wave and 95% of the time people wave back. I think the wave is multifunction though - it is a sign that lets the other know all is well, it is a hello and and goodbye as well as thanks for saying "hi" all wound up into one gesture that takes 3 seconds...

I am still working on the beauty pagent wave though..

Thanks for bringing up this topic.....I live and learn.......up until this thread I though 95% of my fellow boaters were gay and hitting on me and my crew. What a relief....I will stop shooting them the bird!

A full five fingered wave depends on if the other boater cuts between me and the shore while I'm wade fishing. If that happens, he only gets one finger. Most of the time I'll wave all my fingers though...it's a common courtesy down in Texas.

People wave at me all the time on the highway. All though most
of the time they're too busy to hold up more than one finger.

On Boat around 98% of the time, in my truck 85% of the time, mostly to other trucks or John Deere drivers, Two finger salute off the wheel. Just being neighborly, I learned it from an friend who lived in Rural NC down by the sound.
