There are a couple of days of the year that are just "different" on the water. Opening Day, 4th of July, National Longneck Budweiser Day, and lastly the day the Blue Angels fly. Every other day than those and sailors have the water to themselves. Sure, we get fishermen but they tend to cluster around mysterious blobs on their fishfinders; it's easy to avoid them.
But on the aforementioned days, the public ramp is abuzz. Behold the Donzi Gas Consumer:
We only see this particular species of boat on days when there is an overabundance of testosterone in the air (you know how the weatherman gives pollen counts? I assume Gold's Gym puts out testosterone counts). If anything can destroy the enveloping calm of a marina, it's the roar from one of these monsters. On Sunday, there were no less than three of these going out for a short 1.5 hour "cruise" during the Blue Angels run.
Thankfully, it's still another 3 months until National Longneck Budweiser Day. Enjoy the quiet while it lasts.
