I pulled into whittier harbor around 3:15 pm today and there was a good number of boats waiting in the harbor for their turn to pull up to the ramp float and pull out their boat. I wanted to go to my slip on H float so I started going past the boats to my slip. The road rage I encountered really surprised me. The first guy in a 28'ish koffler hull acted like he was going to ram me twice, and almost crashed into the dock when he tried to spray me with his outboard (doesn't work well with a prop). Then he started screaming obscenities at me, which I didn't like as I had my kids and one of their friends onboard. My window was open but he never replied when I tried to talk to him. then some people in a c-dory started yelling also. I don't get it, even if I was so clueless as to be trying to cut the line, why would you go crazy like that? the other 6 or so boats were fine. I am posting this to remind people that not everyone in the harbor is going to the launch ramp. I do understand how frustrating waiting to pull your boat out is.
when you are coming up from behind people it is hard to communicate with them. I would appreciate any suggestions to make this smoother as it left a bad taste in my mouth today.
