Default Keeping a better eye out

What a day, sometimes i cant believe how ignorant some boaters are, by trade we are Marine Contractors, we build docks, bulkheads we also do dredging and salvage. At anytime we are working our 110' pile barge or a triple pinned barge with a Link Belt long reach excavator on board or a 80' dredge barge, none of these pieces of equipment are hard to miss,at all times we have NO WAKE buoys employed as well as call outs on vhf16 to alert boaters. quite often there are men in the water working attaching cross supports or positioning an auger head. Now given all this, one would think boats approaching would slow...nope..90% of boats see us and keep on, blowing up big wake. we use air horns,and get the finger back in return. so i please ask....next time your traveling down the ICW and see construction on the water...slow down, you might just save a life.
