Re: Survival Conditions
I've been out in a lot of snot, but I can't say any of it has itself made me feel like it was threatening crew survival. Some pretty uncomfortable, for sure. There was a storm, when I was a young kid, we were trying to out run back to Montauk and didn't make it. I can still see the waves in front of the boat. They seemed as tall as apartment buildings, but who knows how tall they really were. It's the only time I really thought I wasn't going to make it, but too young to know either way.
I bet at least a couple of times per season, I'm in conditions which I realize would present survival issues, if anything serious broke in the moment. Otherwise, hold on for the ride and get it over with.
