Yes, a raft will act as a FAD, fish aggregating device.
But if your boat is moving then those fish won't cluster about your boat.

Steve Callahan said he thought one dorado followed him the whole way.

Now the more important point is do you think you should be reading those sort of books before you go cruising???

On my first long solo passage, from the canaries to West Indies guess what book I too to read?? Yep! Lololol Steve and I did the Atlantic together. I think he scared the crap outta me.
