n.— «Powerboat owners are habitually dismissive of sailors as preppy, penurious or just plain nerds, referring to them as “blow-boaters” or “snailboaters.” Sailors fire back with “stinkpotters,” peevishly decrying the noise and exhaust spewed by powerboats, and bewailing the scandalous wakes they leave—in no-wake zones, no less.» —“Power Hungry” by John Clemans MotorBoating Oct. 20, 2008.
