I think a large portion of the boating world is waiting to hear what happens if blisters are just left alone. I have a blister problem but I am going to address it next fall.
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217
