Re: Maiden Voyage Newbie Trainwreck

What Roger said. Also, large ships often fail to respond to radio contact. You just need to stay out of their way. Almost all of the areas around the channel up the Delaware are plenty deep. You don't need to stay in the channel. If you're in 15' of water 200 yds outside a shipping channel, you don't need to worry about large ships. You'll also be out of the swiftest current.

Alberg 35: With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship.
