Default Am I wrong?

So, Saturday morning we’re on the bridge rubble SE of the pass. Another boat was 50-60 yards from me. Both of us catching fish. This blue center console is coming right to us. No problem...public number and plenty of space. Instead of powering down, he stays on plane and zips right between us and keeps going South. I’m thinking...seriously? Why would he do that? How does it make sense to not steer around us instead of going between us?

Many boat operators are oblivious.

It was a stupid move.

Doesn’t surprise me. Had one do the same more than once. What a jack ass.

Same person that'll leave shopping carts in the middle of the parking space. Just don't care at all except about themselves.
Waked you too, didn't he?

Scalloping over in St. Joe bay a few weeks back, had three run right through a fleet of anchored boats with dive flags up and people in the water. Just the grace of God no one was killed. Told an FWC officer at the ramp who showed absolutely no interest.

Have had my trolled baits cut off twice. We were 15 miles or so out, without another boat anywhere around. Except for the ass-jack that couldn't be bothered to adjust his AP a degree or two. The 2nd one I was ready and free-spooled all the line into his props. Cost me a couple of bucks but was worth it.

No, you are not wrong. General public is self-centered and I don't see it getting any better in the future.
