|Hey Captain Jerry,|
Thanks for taking my teasing so well and for sharing your experience with your name-sake, Jerry's rock pile. It just proves that even experienced mariners can make mistakes and can get into serious trouble. Captain JC's recent death from his boating accident is a heartbreaking example. He was very experienced as you know.
We all need to be fully tuned-in when we're under way or not... In the Delta you can become a bulls eye. I never round bends and corners (like "T-Bone" on Sand Mound) without running wide and having a look at what might be coming at me from the blind side.
I just hope all this makes and keeps us all more aware when on the water.
Be safe out there folks.
Dan, who always wears his PFD when underway - ditto for anyone riding in my skiff!
