Wannafish is on a distinguished road
That reminds me of my first experience with a freighter (fully loaded at that). My 2 boys, wife and I were about 2 miles out in Lake Huron in our new 19' bayliner. Ok, so it's not a sailboat story...
"Hey kids - let's go look at the freighter..."
Holy Crap! Do those things put out a wake! Sure was a good thing we had the bow cover on because when we fell into the wake the water washed over us and we came up like a bobber. After that the boys named our boat "Bay-Bobber".
OK - I'll shut up now.

Back to sailing stories...
