I found out one thing tonight. It's a bit scary when someone is standing near center cockpit, facing starboard/stern, talking to a passenger, while heading right for me Lights were on at twilight, doing about 15 mph. Thankfully, the little Sea Doo boat to his port side turned on his lights and saw me.

Tough move. I could have turned hard port and gunned it to reverse direction. I made the wrong assumption that the captain was looking ahead. Good thing, he might have seen a close call. I don't think he moved off course all the way to the cut, and didn't turn around either.

I need a beer.

A nice day today. Headed south with the Vt crew (Dave, Chris and myself representing the NY contingent) to the mouth of the Bouquet River and then on to the Old Dock for dinner. Met Chad and Amanda at the launch before we headed south. They had their new Checkmate (a bunch of Checkmates lately...must be breeding somewhere)!! Welcome to the crew and hope to see you tomorrow at Treadwell. A bunch of pic's ahead so enjoy!!
