That could be a good new thread.
We could make a list of annoying SH** left on while the owners are off playing or whatever.
Marine Band Radio
left on breaking squelch over the loudspeaker.
activated and strobe going off all night.
Strobe going off all night.
No kidding Boat came in during the day and took the ball right off our stern. As the sun went down it became more than obvious his spot light was on and shining right into our cockpit
. They had departed by dinghy
not to return until the wee hours of the morning.
Piercing High water
alarm intermittently going off in St T harbor.
We investigate but can't get access without breaking in and nobody is home. The boat doesn't appear to be in peril. Waterline is normal and no bilge pump
Next day the owner, who spent the night in a hotel
explains casually that the HW switch was installed too low in the bilge
he just hadn't got around to moving it. Knuckles, my engineer
explains that he can remove it and shove it up his a** if that will help get him motivated.
On a happy note..... The guy left a case of Bud on deck
with a note when he departed.
The worst....barking dog. Owners gone for the night.
Boat traveling ICW
at night with 500 jigawatt spot lighting
the way. We are head
and the spot stays on and no answer on 16.
Would have been a good drill for a sniper.
