Re: Great White spotted near Key West

The number of Great Whites off the coast of SA is incredible. There is one island that is home to thousands of seals and it attracts hundreds of GWs. Remarkably it is less than half a mile off a major beach and there has never been a shark attack. Maybe they don't like the taste and prefer seal.

Back in the water in Grenada - with new main and #2 and cockpit canvas (Santa came early). Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
