There's a bit of animosity that goes both ways between boat operators and kayakers. There will always be idiots on both sides. I've been in situations when kayak fishing, where hoon boat operators have actually passed me several times at very high speed, leaving a gap of only 2 or 3 metres. What made it worse, I was fighting a large fish at the time. And no, I was nowhere near any channel or thoroughfare at the time. There are completed losers on all walks of life, unfortunately.

I currently own and operate a power boat and I have done so for many years. I always try to show respect and courtesy to all the people I might come across when on the water.

I mostly use my kayaks in places where there are few or no power boats at all. Some of my local waterways prohibit the use of power boats and in other areas, I tend to find out of the way places where the distinct advantages of a kayak can be best utilised.

I really like kayaks. They're great to simply throw on the roof and off you go, type situations. You can launch them anywhere and there's no queing at ramps. There are extremely cheap to operate. I can head off on a family vacation with the yak on the roof and you don't even know it's there, until you want to use it.

G'Day!
Yet another yaker here, and proud of it :)
As has been said, there are tossers on both sides of the picture, but I try to stick to locations away from all the hectic action of powerboats, especially during events held on the Basin.

I have 3 yaks and all have their purpose from skinny water Basing through to outside in the Big Blue.

They are great for fishing waters that the boats just can't get to and this leads to some pretty Specky catch and releases.

My main yak is a Hobie PA14 and stand up sight fishing is a breeze in it, no stability hassles what so ever.

Just as a side note: If you would like to test ride a Hobie and live in the Nowra region, head down to the display at Grey's Boat ramp from 10am in the morning.
You will have to contact Peddle Paddle Sail Sth Nowra to book a vessel for trial though ;)
