My wife likes to stand on the foredeck and shake her fist at the last three. We get some glares

Re: boat waker type

The smaller the boat the worse the offender. Although I am tempted to use the middle finger from time to time, it's getting so bad I'm beginning to wonder if we are now supposed to ignore our own wake except for children in kayaks.

Re: boat waker type

I have noticed that the Harbor Police have been pulling a lot of power boaters over in the mooring field lately. My guess is that they blew by the No Wake and speed limit buoys on the way in
