But for this all you need is a cap made out of aluminum foil!
I've noticed many alien beings south of Albany:-)

Re: Dangers of Whales

I actually watched a video of a sailboat being destroyed by a breaching whale in one of the Baja haha races I believe it was. No one was injured and the Coast Guard picked them up, but I'm sure it was a pretty scary thing to go through.
