what make is that boat in your signature?? Looks very nice.only on a light & variable day with no serious threats of squalls.
Only if i were fishing in site of other boats. I would not be wondering off on my own or fishing out of reach of help.
And no way jose would i overnight in the canyons. S... Happens and its a long from home in the pitch dark.
The Leprechan I know is a Bertram from South Amboy, but certainly, none-the-less, I like yours better! Sweet machine, guy!Its this boat all redone. Ring any bells? I know you know.

I wanted to answer the poll, but I can't enter 1 and 2 together. My thoughts are that even the most thoroughly maintained machine is still subject to error or fault (that's just the way the world works). I hate to site it as an example, but the shuttle did break up, not once but twice, and I'm sure as hell NASA did everything to make sure that they wouldn't. Granted, I'm not a NASA tech and it may be a bit of an extreme example, but the possibility for error always looms in the balance, even with the simplest of tasks. Knowledge is key, but then again you see the reports of veteran commercial captains going down as well (freak weather or error, etc).
The "bunch of damn fools" option... I think that this is where the knowledge and maintainance are more of a factor.
I've been the "damn fool" before and I never want to be there again. Learning by experience - the KEY reality.
Best to you and yours! TC,
