Boys with toys

After the boat show, a new vessel appeared in our marina — something unlike any of the others.

This thing was fast, and it was definitely violating the “no wake” policy in the marina.

But nobody seemed too concerned.

I don’t know the exact price, but I’m pretty sure our neighbor paid more for this thing than we did for our first sailboat.

It runs off a small one-cylinder two-cycle engine and sounds like a weedeater. You have to remove the cowling and pull a cord to start it. Then you’re off to the races.

At least until it dies in the middle of the fairway, and your neighbor has to dinghy out to bring it back.

Power boaters … SMH.
