Re: Crossing the gulf and things you forgot to bring aboard

Guero-
"We were on our last tank of water and it was full, we had just switched. "
If I may suggest, when you have at least two tanks of anything, the safest way to use them is to use only 1/2 of the first tank, then switch to #2. Now you use #2 up, but you've still got half of the first tank in reserve--instead of having one tank empty and zero reserve.

There are lots of oil platforms and other often unlit obstructions in parts of the Gulf, so you may want the night watch to keep especially alert, and of course to use sunglasses during the day in order to improve night vision.
