OK, this suggestion came up in one of the 'rant' threads for a Hall of Shame where we can post information about some of the asshats out on the water. So, here are the suggested rules:
  1. Incidents of 'asshattery' must be directly observed - no "I heard about this guy..." stuff
  2. No generalizations about boat type or behavior - just the facts ma'am!
  3. As with #2, please keep the editorializing to a minimum
  4. Please be as detailed as possible
The second post will have a proposed form to follow - I figure folks can "quote" my example post, change the details, and voila we have a fairly consistent way to identify some of the blind and clueless on the water. Being able to recognize some of these guys might just help someone stay away from a hazard - and maybe one of the offenders might see themselves on here and realize how their actions impact others.

Captains, if this pans out maybe we could pin this thread.

Gawd...this reminds me of the senior citizen complex my parent's have a condo in....in Florida !
Those older folks have nothing better to than watch what anyone does and nit pick...bicker...and file complaints.


IMO..something like this could (potentially) give LSCN a bad name.
I don't think that sort of "reporting or calling out" was ever the intention of the administrators/owners.

I'd let the sheriff do his job and get over it already.

But...whatever....


The only thing I can see is if there is a repeated unsafe operation of a boat....that if you're going to call them out on a public board....you'd have more than enough info to call them out to the sheriff


just my opinion

I see nothing wrong with having this thread, it's not going to give LSCN a bad name


The nitpicking in threads lately about what should or shouldn't be said is really getting tiresome. Let the Admins and Moderators do their job, they've been doing fine for 10 years and the site keeps growing so I wouldn't worry too much about a thread that warns people of boaters who are careless and disrespectful.

You are assuming the sheriff will
1. see it happen
2. care
3. do anything about it.

If the captain of the "Offending" boat wants to dispute what is said about him/her then they are free to post here too. Free speech is a wonderful think

Sounds OK to me... As long as this doesn't turn into some kind of vigilante justice venue...
We all see what the yahoo's do out there.. Sometimes it's scary...

I don't think the Hull of Shame idea is that bad. Just as long as there is no name calling or anything else that will break the rules of the board. LSCN is already established in the community. This idea will not make or break anything with the reputation of LSCN.

Keep on rocking!

I have three, and hate to say the one, but such is life. This was Wed. 6-24-2009 late afternoon

Boat name: N/A
Boat type: Sea Doo XP
Description: Yellow/Black in color
MC #: N/A
Location: Off the point of Blue Lagoon
Behavior: Non english speaking operator wearing an orange PFD and over weight with assz crack hanging out on said jetski, running well within 10 feet of me and my dog as we were swiming in 3' of water. Said operator coming from the south river launch, cruised by us multiple times. Used the boats in front of belle maer as a rece course to zig zag in and out. One guy did stop him and explained what he was doing wrong. Operator then proceeded to drive away doing the exact same thing.

Boat name: XRT
Boat type: Sunsation
Description: Black
MC #: N/A
Location: Mac Ray entrance
Behavior: Guessing 10 to 12 mph through the canal pass the gass dock and slowed down to make the westerly turn to head down the canal. Way to fast. So fast that the wake actually splashed over the bow of my inflatable. No excuses

Boat name: N/A
Boat type: Old Roamer maybe???? 40' maybe. Came from Blue lagoon
Description: White, with make shift/home made cockpit enclosure
MC #: N/A
Location: Mac Ray Main canal 1/2 way down
Behavior: Wake was so large, again had water splash up over the side. When I gave him a point at his wake, he did the "wave the hand in the air-whatever gesture"

there is no fishing line in our jet boat.

Let me just quote what I said.....again....so you wont have to.

I dunno...that seems kinda like ONE PERSON'S OPINION and no reason to get your panties inna bunch.

Geeeez get outside...it's finally summer !!!

I just came in from a nap on the deck...lulled to sleep by the sound of boats blowing by our seawall.
that's life on the water.

ok..carry on...and sheesh...when did MY opinion get to be so IMPORTANT ???

o wait...I always forget about the behind the scenes campaign in PM's someone runs.
I was shown one once..and laughed my azz off.

Seriously...get over it (and me)

Steph, with all due respect...do you have a crystal ball to know this isn't going to backfire into name calling, fights...and all sorts of things ??

AND...who JUDGES what the other does...if you see things from a distance...you might get the wrong idea...
judging gets very tricky and I don't think anyone here is qualified to be one. Not even Deputy Dawg.

I guess when someone disagrees or has another opinion...you consider that nit picking ??
hmmmm...interesting...especially keeping in mind the frantic PM's you send out telling us who not to talk to and what not to say


Yeah..LSCN has been around for ten years...but its never been a sight for vigilantes. (as far as I know)

Someone else said it better....said it was okay as long as it didnt turn into a vigilante focus....
well..yeah...but how can you predict that ??

My opinion still stands that I think its a bad idea in concept. But I dont rule the roost here.
and...I will NOT be standing out at my seawall taking pictures of peeps making mistakes or intentionally misbehaving. You want to know why ?? coz they always have and they always will...and those kinds of people don't care about rules anyways.

Not wasting my time. Life is too short.

but hey...you guys go right ahead...have at it. and Good Luck to LSCN's reputation.

exactly !!
and calling this new venture "LSCN Hall of Shame" I think is a little presumptuous....unless of course you've already cleared it with the admins who own this site ?
(good call on that one, Mini)

Seriously- look at your post count!


Sorry I had to bust your chops!



no sweat, Ken....it's not the first time..it won't be the last time

I can handle it.
I always consider the source
