You see this nonsense on the water everyday!
Couple years back, the wind is gusting to 30knots from the north east.
Thats over 300 miles of open fetch for the waves to build. Wave are 10-12 footers. Very steep and very close.
We are hanging out at the docks when I am approached by a gentleman.
He asks what I think about him launching his 18 foot fishing boat.
He plans on staying close to the shore line.
After about an half an hour of trying to convince this gentleman that it was not a good idea to go out in an 18 foot open boat in 10 -12 foot breaking seas, I gave up.
There was nothing I could say to make him change his mind.
The harbor master tried, and he had the same results.
Well he launched his boat and half and hour later he was back.
You see this stuff ALL THE TIME!
