Default Time to go postal !!

With all this media hype over a flu virus where the numbers of
the infected do not add up and the genius politicians are making irrational
moves to save and protect us... Ugh NO !

Today there is a flashing bill board at the New Smyrna Beach, FL. public ramps that reads "BOAT RAMPS CLOSED" 03/27/20-04/14/20 !!!!!
Give me a break, we are in the middle of the best fishing time on the
east coast that spring has to offer..

I know you guys in South FL. have had your ramps closed for a week or so now..

Time to stand up and say screw you ....

We have to take a stance ! I'm old enough and pissed off enough that
I do not care what the outcome will be....

MORE LATER !

Yeah the government maintains it's long history of being nonsensical and lacking proficiency.

Simple. Buy a house on the water and install a lift. Brttrrbyet install 2 lifts for all those that will come and visit. Many years ago I had a house on a canal and I had 4 boats back there. Best part was my wife could not tell which were mine and which were friends boats.

So much for catching your own dinner and staying out of the grocery store. I say lift the bag limits on eatable fish during this time so people can stock their freezers the next two weeks. Im filling mine with trout this weekend hopefully


Since when do you get closer than 6 feet to anybody at the ramp or out on the water anyhow? How dose this help?

Authorities are pressured to close off boating because of damn fools who gather on sandbars to party, up close and personal. Closure is a bad decision. The vast majority of boaters aren't going to sand bars and are not spreading the virus. We are getting screwed because of overreaction to a minority of fools.

Happily there is a noticeable uptick in jet skis for sale on Craigslist. So all the bartenders/club worker flat billed hat idiots that like to go WOT thru manatees zones are out of commission for a while.

Leland I have a great idea. Take some of the 2.2 Trillion we will never see and buy all the jet skis, then dig a really big hole and put all of them in there, set them on fire and cover it up. Then, and this is important, in the future you must NOT be an idiot to own one!! That will cut the number of jet skis by 90%!!

I won't go in to detail about my jet ski close call a few weeks ago out at Beer Can Island, but I'm happy I don't carry my gun on board. You would have heard about me on the local news.

Things they almost never have on board.
Pfd, whistle, radio,

things they almost always have: a buzz, a discourteous attitude, a lead foot and a lack of navigational skills or knowledge

Whoa there buckaroo, you ought to live around these parts, Ken. They are shutting down the ramp continuously, for all these "special " occasions, for craft shows, seafood festivals, wildlife shows, you name it.
