How about wake AND fog? Last year, on our delivery from Annapolis to Lake Champlain, we ducked into Atlantic City in pea soup fog. We were feeling our way via radar, GPS and compass headings off buoys, when, all of a sudden, out of the Absecon Inlet channel, a 50' Hatteras or similar comes roaring out at 20+ kts, outriggers deployed! We couldn't see past our bow, and this idiot is running like it's a sunny day, and not even doing a securite call! Not only did we have to turn and almost hit the inlet wall (jagged rocks), but he rolled our boat pretty hard with his wake and we had a mess to clean up down below. Idiots.
