Re: A couple wisely decides to head back in...

Oh, my!!, the video brings back memories of the commercial salmon troller my Dad and I had. We would go out the San Francisco ship channel, in the dark, in far worse stuff than in the video to "make money". About the dumbest thing I ever did. I am not religous but used to pray "Dear God, please get me out of this and I will never do it again". Well, he did and I lied.

Years later we sailed a Coronado 25 out the Gate for 10 years, but were a WHOLE lot more carefull about the sea conditions., Being pushed by a schedule or for other motives can be harmfull to one's health. A picture of a boat nearly identical to ours, below:
