It wasn't Brian.
I was at Whittier, the first time I was out with my wife and daughter without my son helping. The wind came up when we were coming back in . The dock was a mess with about 10 boats lining up to get to the dock to load. Basically in the harbor trying to keep off the rocks and other boats while the wind is whipping you around. A tolman cabin catches a bit of wind and is like a kite in this situation. After about 30 minutes jockey trying to stay in one place it was my turn as I approach the dock an Ahole in a jet boats comes speeding in between me and the dock. I had to cut power and hit reverse to keep from hitting him. The loss of momentum and direction caused me to be blown into some rocks and debrie, my daughter is using a push pole to keep me off the rocks but I had to use power to get out of there. I made a rookie mistake and didn't get tilted up enough soon enough and met a rock up close and personal. I was a little hot but kept it to myself as I saw the jet boat blown into a lot more rocks than I when he tried to load. Karma in action. The wind is a pain at Whittier at low tide. Live and learn.
Brian - did you mix it up with Alasken?
I personally don't mind letting folks who are in a rush, go first. If someone knows what they are doing and will be quick, I have no issue letting them go first. I go out there to fish for fun and blow off steam. If someone else is working on the clock or else trying to make a living off the water, I generally feel like they can go ahead a go first. I am out there to take a load off and enjoy the water, last thing I need to is get my blood boiling at the dock.
