    So either on our motorcycle or the boat Ruth my wife will persistently wave at people until they wave back. She gets the biggest kick from the people that try not to notice her waving until they give in and wave back on our way out the channel out to the lake.

    Just gives thanks that Lucas didn't make refrigerators. I've had MGs my whole life and had to become a pretty good 12 volt electrician thanks to Lucas but could have never made if the beer had been hot as well. My B is parked right behind the corvette and I wave at other vettes and MG drivers as well of course I don't see an MG on the road but about every other year

    I've noticed in my area, boaters wave on Lake Superior & the Mississippi River, however on the St. Croix, it seems not so much. I still do on the St. Croix. It might be because during the Summer weekends on the St. Croix, it's can be extremely busy. You need your head to be on a swivel. Many idiot boaters on that river.
