Re: Dangers of Whales

Can you imagine careening along at 17 knots in an Open60 with a 12 foot weighted dagger board and hitting a surfacing whale? Definitely not kosher. We need some kind of deer whistle for boats.

My brother worked on a nuclear sub and said occasionally a whale would try to mate with them and knocked everyone down.
