Re: Bad things that happen at sea.
Don't have ant stats, but the number of boats lost in these areas would be very small. Probably not weather related unless you are talking about something like Hurricane Sandy which destroyed many boats where they were moored.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
