Re: Running aground

Might have a look at the new thread I just started called "Hey! A new uncharted shoal in the Broadwater" in the navigation forum.

Re: Running aground

I once applied for a Captain's job and was asked if I've ever run aground. I answered yes and got the job. Later I asked the marine superintendent about the questions and he said "You answered correctly... anyone who answers no is either a $#@$ liar or doesn't have enough experience."
