Things to watch out for...

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.

Re: Things to watch out for...

I mentioned in another thread

Tsunami debris arriving

that I am going to be there is this summer.

I already have the experience of hitting a piece of fishing net in the Pacific gyre.
