| Outdoor Board|| Boating Etiquette Question - MikeD on 2/8/15 at 2:13 pm|
My buddy is a recent boat owner. We are both fairly new to fishing in the marsh and went out of Delacroix this morning. We had a guy wave at us when going by on plane in a canal probably 50 yards away from him while he was anchored. After that we started slowing down when passing other boats.
