Me and you both. I avoid driving the boat around all that mess, but I did slowly cruise thru on the Sea Doo a few times because it's fast and maneuverable enough to avoid most dangers. I've only sat out on the lake once during a 4th of July fireworks show, and I have no intention of doing it again. My in-laws have a pontoon boat, and driving that thing back in the dark after a fireworks show is like getting caught in the middle of a race at Daytona mixed with the finishing race of a bass tournament. It's just crazy.
But I agree with you--nothing like sitting out on the deck in the early morning in October overlooking the lake and sunrise with a cup of coffee. (<--Wants It)
I usually stay at the house during all the home game weekends in the fall becuase it's so convenient.
