The whale can also hit the boat. The Essex of Nantucket was stove in by a whale 190 years ago, which Melville made famous. The book Survive the Savage Sea is the story of a family whose boat was stove in near the Galapagos. If you see a whale I think it would be wise to douse sails, turn on the engine, and head in the other direction.
