For those of us sailing the bc coast, currents are a big , useful part of exciting cruising .Local knowledge can be expensively earned.We don't have to dodge log booms as frequently as back in the day but they can still add a new dimension to hull damage .Current tends to flow unimpeded under a moored boom and if this is in a bend in the channel or the Fraser River , you suddenly discover 'you not goin wher you point' .Just drifting or engine failure adds to the excitement. Done both so 'Told ya so'
