Default Unmanly/irritating boating trends.

After reading the discussion about what people preferred "fishing clothing line" is, i have been inspired to list the unmanly/irritating things that I believe are destroying the hobby or boating/fishing. Feel free to add any that you may come up with.
1. The aforementioned fishing clothing. Douchey shirts with do not make your old fat carcass look sexier and they aren't any better at preventing skin cancer. The only thing WORSE is a 50 year old tattooed redneck boating with NO shirt or that hairy guy form Miami in a banana hammock. Some of this stuff makes you long for the old mid 80's Miami days of chest toupees and gold chains as thick as your index finger.
2. Lot of pretty colored LED lights under your gunwales. The only logic that I see in them is that they make your specialty fishing shirts glow pretty a night.
3. Catamaran fishing boats. Every time someone asks what is the best center console, someone always chimes in with "buy a cat...they're the best!!" Well, if they are the best, why aren't all fishing boats catamarans? You bought it because you have a queasy stomach or because the girl with the big fake boobs that you had on your old Mako said that she didn't like the boat rocking when she had her ass hanging out over the transom trying to pee because she didn't like the chum bucket and beach towel that you offered her. Catamarans are only manly if you are buying an old Hobie for your 10 year old daughter.
4. Multicolored underwater LED lights. Are you trying to catch "rainbow" trout or some other gay fish?
5. $90,000 Cadillac based outboards. Oh, and the 45 center console boat they come with. There is this obscure company by the name of Cummins that makes a 550hp engine that is half the price, gets better fuel mileage and will likely last at least twice as long AND won't fall off the back of your boat.
6. Boats with 8 12 inch powered subwoofers and enough amplification to power the PA rig at a medium sized live music venue, Da Club is over there on that stuff we call dry land. Hip Hop and Dubstep fart bass has not been shown to attract fish.
7. People who play Jimmy Buffett 24/7 while on the water. Go down to Margaritaville and see if they have any hair plugs and Spanx.
8. Boat wraps if you aren't getting paid a LOT of money or being given a buttload of gear for free other than the aforementioned specialty fishing clothes.
9 Crocs. See the previous 10 year old girl comment.
10. Center consoles that go 90 mph. Why do you need to be first on the hot spot to catch a fish that is barely suitable for use as generic discount store cat food or to feed starving Hatian refugees who have been caught as sea for two weeks?

That's enough for now.This is done in fun and if any of you are offended.....well, you are the problem.

Stopped reading at Catamaran. They're the best for the Texas offshore slop, and I don't own one.

!2. Go Pro cameras,, especially if used in conjunction with a very long "selfie stick" or a "drone." Its a RADIO CONTROLLED TOY unless it can operate on its own without some redneck steering it and take pictures of North Vietnamese SAM sites.. Your life is not so interesting that you need to document every waking hour on digital video.

Bracelets and pinky rings, spray tans, unbelievably neon white teeth on old men. Collared shirts untucked to hide pot belly.

You covered approx 53.5% of the current unmanly/irritating trends. B+ grade.

Is there a "grumpy old guy" section in the boating forums? THT needs one and this should be the first sticky.
