    Spoke to a skipper tonight who said he had read this. His words "Madness". A gps wont tell you whats coming and as Woddy found out theres some big ships out there :happy:

    I felt safe in the Fog
    I was only 1/4 mile off in 40 feet of water under the cliffs. I dont think theres much chance of getting hit by a Ship under there?
    I know it is a bit risky a smaller vessel could come over the top of us But Crossing a road has risks involved Is it really so reckless I dont believe it is?

    He was refering to the situation described by Woody Acko - the bit where a big boat nearly clobbered them :happy:
