A perfect example of a place where you will never find me, or my boat.

I've had too many close calls in congested places, and these days, work VERY hard to stay away from crowds. It only takes one a$$hat to ruin your day, on the water.

Go ahead, call me a killjoy :)

A Hurricane Rose. On Off-Soundings events we used to make up rafts like that but with boats more in the one to eight ton range. Two favorite moments, both early morning.

Just at dawn He was silently slipping gunnel to gunnel clockwise only to meet Her slinking along anti-clockwise. But it was the sixties . . .

Another dawn, one of our crew was a heavy smoker and would save below deck sleeping ears by getting up on deck for his morning gagging. He was a very skinny guy, ribs visible, looked like a concentration camp reject. The companionway of the next boat opened and She of the crew looked without pity on our guy. She was classic WASP, athletic, tall, ruddy complexion and booming voice. She turned her head down into her own boat and thundered forth, "Well Bucky, there's one we needn't worry about."
