Hmmm, going out around Hatteras inshore of the Stream, in a NE breeze equivalent in knots to the length of your boat...?
Not sure I'd consider that to be especially "well thought out", but perhaps that's just me... (grin)
I don't know, a guy drinking 10 beers during the course of a single watch, that tale sounds a bit "tall", to me...
