I don't have a boat, but I would think that if I did have one, I'd love to be able to get away from the chaos on land, get out on the water, and enjoy some peace and quiet. Which is why I found this interesting. I was on a bike ride on Sunday and I was breezing around the outer loop of Seward Park in Seattle. There's a little cove next to the park where you'll often see five, ten, maybe twenty boats anchored, just kicking it in the sunshine. But on this day, in the midst of all that tranquility, this one boat was BLASTING music out of two giant speakers mounted on poles.
Clearly, everybody in every boat out there, as well as anybody anywhere nearby on shore, could hear this music. I thought it was annoying, and I was just riding by on a bike, several hundred yards away from the floating mixmaster. It must have been really loud out there on the water.
So I wondered: Does this bother other boaters? Or are they grateful that somebody has taken the time to hook up their giant speakers and blast their hot club party mix out there for everyone to enjoy? You tell me.
Those people are inconsiderate idiots! Just like my neighbor, that we called the cops on, for playing is car stereo LOUD while he was working on it at 3AM in the morning! WTF?
thanks for taking the video!!
I'm glad you enjoyed your bike ride - not so glad it was annoyed by the boat music. Thank you for the video - the neighbors of Seward Park are in the process of changing what you experienced, removing the right to anchor in Andrews Bay. Yes, somebad apples ruin it for others and the garbage, noise, drunkeness, anchoring too close to shore in the bay has increased this past summer and will be brought to the City Council. thanks again for the video.
