Fair enough, but that is a short article, not a whole book. We are busy people and don't have time to read, like, whole books. The ship avoidance info should be given in a shorter form, perhaps a sonnet - 14 lines should be enough for a skilled author.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
