I have to agree that I always try to read statistics with a wary eye. I, too, have always thought that the shallow vs. deep water statistic was misinterpreted since (as you say), the vast majority of people swimming in ocean waters are in shallow water.

I also know what you mean about the psychological difference between being smashed inside a steel shell (car), or chomped by an eating machine (shark). But worst of all is being run-through by a pirate''s cutlass, don''t you think

Fair winds,
