Other than that there is no fear-based perspective 'round here.
I went below to visit the head while single handing one time and promptly ran aground. I quickly filed that in my lessons learned folder. Always make certain that there is no shallow water within striking distance before going below.

I bought the dead tree version of the book. Should be here 1st week in February.

Have FUN!
