Fishermen Disrupt Boat Race
My friend and I were heading back to the boat launch, tired and hungry after having fished all morning. As we got closer to shore I said to my buddy, “Hey buddy, those boats are coming straight at us real fast!” He was piloting our small boat, and he looked over but did nothing. We had seen speeding boats go by all day. I saw that these boats were definitely coming straight at us, and yours truly was beginning to worry. The two boats passed within feet of us, right and left, moving very fast. The driver of one boat was standing up and waving his fist. He was screaming something. He seemed to be very upset.
It turned out that we had wandered into a racing competition for monster boats. They stopped the races, just for us, while we doubled back, as instructed by the screaming man on the jet-ski. We lazily turned around and wandered off the race course. We were both too tired to really care.
I’ll never forget that day. The fishing was terrible.
