Thanks, Good article and paper!

The conclusion still seems to be don't be there, and if you are, pray.

There are two types of fools...

One says this is old, and therefore good..

The other says this is new, and therefore better...

Well that's all well and good, but what to do if you're living aboard or on a long open passage? I've always had this question buried deep in my brain, but I've been too scared to think about it.

"Well that's all well and good, but what to do if you're living aboard"
You go to the library, go shopping, or spend the night at the Budget Motel.

"or on a long open passage? " AH, now THAT's when you get religion. And try to find the smallest driest spot that isn't near any metal on the boat.<G>
