Re: Have you ever hit a shipping container?

I look forward to your article. Hitting a container (or other large debris) especially at night is my biggest fear. It could sink your boat in seconds and at night, with little warning even deploying a life raft would be difficult. If crew were sleeping below, they may never escape.
