Having been swamped in a small tender with my family (inc 2 small kids) by a stupid MoBo that I was flagging to slow down, I have a certain antipathy to those who do not consider the needs of others. Clearly you are better than that - sorry to have jumped to the wrong conclusion.

No offense taken, Sealegs. I agree with you 100% about the idiots. Boating is very much like the road, where a significant proportion of people have no consideration for anyone else. Most of the big motor cruisers are driven sensibly on Windermere (apart from a few, who I won't name & shame on here even though they're not forum members), but can't say the same about the wake boarders and water skiers, who don't seem to have any idea about the problems their wakes are causing the smaller craft about the Lake, or those moored up. (Worse than the 'Miss Cumbria' type launches and that's saying something!)

Yep. The speed limit argument isn't open for discussion any more so that's where it stands. (except it may be dropped from 10 knots to 10 mph due to a legislative cock-up).
The suicide boaters, when they aren't basking on the rocks, are doing stuff like this

I thought that the Hanse 53 was a waste on Windermere too, but now I just think his holiday cottage is a bit bigger (well twice as big) than mine. I think waterfront property on Windermere, with the space you get in A Hanse 53, is going to be more than £250,000.Bob.
Any bull in this post may be composted.

That sailing boat (which seems to be called "Arsehole" or something very similar ) doesn't appear to be moving (there is no wake or even a smooth patch behind her) so I don't see any great risk to the hire boat unless a sudden gust occurs.
