Re: Have you ever hit a shipping container?
I passed by one in the Straights of Fla. about 15 years ago, about 50 miles north of Cuba. It was sticking maybe 6 inches out of the water, I didn't see it untill I was passing a boats length to wind ward of it. The only reason I didn't hit it was dumb luck. My friend converted an aluminum life boat into a cruising sail boat and came down hard on a 40 foot mahogony tree in the same stretch of water. KABOOM, He said. Had his wife and daughter aboard, nothing happened to the hull.
