Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?

Don't be too hard on yourself - it's an easy mistake to make.

Along the edge of our Yarra river is a rock wall (a wave barrier of sorts) behind which is a popular boat ramp, that is exposed at low tide but submerged at high tide and marked only by the occasional white post. It's not uncommon for people in a hurry to take a short-cut across the top rather than go the long way right around the end of it as you're supposed to and I've never known anyone to hit it (at least, if they have, I've not heard about it!)... but it's bound to happen one day.
