Re: Please be a little mindful to other boaters
I saw what you're talking about just this past week. Had the family up at the beach on Kinzua Dam right at the route 59 bridge. Probably about 20 people out swimming in the roped off area. About a third of the motor boats that came by zipped over as close as they could get to the swim area, I assume to look at bikinis, but who knows. Anyway, they were just ripping by, some even sped up maybe to try to impress someone??? Sent some pretty big waves into the swimmers, some of whom were pretty small kids, my 2 1/2 year old son being one of them. There were three kayakers paddling around not much further out than the swim area ropes, some fishing some just paddling. Every one of them came in and said the heck with it with all the waves. This was on a weekday. I'd hate to see a weekend.
One smaller aluminum boat came up the far shoreline with planer boards out, trolling the shoreline. He crossed the lake and came to our side. As he crossed, three different boats passed him and not one of them cut him any slack by giving a wide berth. Two of them were even waving their arms and yelled stuff at him.
What a circus. Kinda entertaining at certain points. Really just indicative overall of how little regard people have for others anymore.
