So it's not just ribbers.

But I bet they knew your were a rib owner so he was still picking on you

We went in on Friday with 1 very wet looking kid in the bow, as she had been knocked off the rib by a friendly 40ft power boat that went past us at Egypt point sending up such a wash she was thrown over board. Nothing to do with Cowes HA, but wake can cause serious annoyance, injury and death. Lesson learnt - even though she had a life jacket on, make sure kids are in seats at all times!!

No such problems with speed in this neck of the woods!

I have done some observations and if anything 30+ knots seems to be the speed that leaves the smallest wake in my RIB, I guess there is less boat in the water but you can steam past the moored yachts where I launch going flat out and they hardly move, at 6-7kt they rock around all over the place.

You are all wrong!!!!!!!!!!!

You must wait until everybody is anchored and they are all on deck showing off their riches and bimbo's. THEN you go pass at least at 10 knots- kick up a hell of wave so that you can see their boats rock,..... then get the bleeding hell out of the dump. Its even more amuising with two 250's on the back....
Me antisocial?? you bet your bottom dollar I am.

I recon you should switch your outboard/s off when you see the Harbour Master comming and get the Oars out, when he passes you should stand the oars to attention and salute with the other hand.

I've actually rammed the Cowes Harbour Masters boat.....It was a couple of years ago though.

Hmm. I guess something's rattled their cage. There's a few of us heading up past the Folly next weekend. I wonder if it would make a point to them if we all followed Hightower's suggestion?
