From the comments on this topic, I have come to the conclusion that the majority of motor boat people are both Republicans and NRA life members. Enough said.

One of the most ignorant comments ever posted on this board.

I agree, but probably lots of truth to it.

If you are overweight and can't swim, why put yourself at risk of waves from boat traffic? Furthermore, how can you expect them to slow down for you? Do you speed up for them? Slowing down will often result in higher waves.
If you can't take the heat, stay off the water. Lakes are the Wild West and everyone needs to be a bit more careful!
Sailboats and paddlers have the right of way Einstein - You shouldn't be operating a boat if you don't know the rules!

I don't think right of way was an issue here. I think it has more to do with the non motorized folks having and entitlement mindset and expecting those around them to curtail their speed, course etc. just because they feel superior.

Boating comes with right of way rules, just like driving. Those lakes are for everyone, so if you can't keep your boat and your speed under control and watch for swimmers and smaller boats, somebody needs to take your boat away from you and sell it. You're a selfish menace. If your wake endangers a kayaker, you're at fault.
BTW, didn't you know that in the water, an overweight person has a survival edge over any emaciated guy with big muscles? We're naturally buoyant and insulated. I can outswim jocks half my age, and I have. Unlike Mr. America, I don't need to put most of my energy into staying afloat. So you'd better be wearing that PFD if you hit a rock with your big, bad boat.
I'm also female. I kayak on lakes. I'm a big girl. Get over yourself. People who get their machismo from their boats usually don't have much else going for them.
Do you happen to have big knockers? I love big girls.
