Things to worry about

Yeah, I know, some people think I worry too much about lightning but it is one of my pet fears. I know some people worry about sharks but I never do. I might if I see em but an hour later I'm back in the water. I think there are far more lightning deaths than shark attacks.
Then there is alligators, I hate the damn things but I don't worry about em. I won't go in the water if I see one nearby but being in Fl, I know every body of water is crawlin with em.
Snakes (not a sailing issue) do bother me as I do a lot of wandering in places they happen to be so I look carefully for em.
Getting hit by a sting ray, ok that does bother me as I've seen it happen.
So, what semi-rational fears do you have?

Re: Things to worry about

I'll admit to this one : I get totally creeped out diving to check on my prop in the murky waters of the Chesapeake. I hate not being able to see more than a foot in front of my face!
