there are 2 main problems out at sea - the first is getting some sleep..when you are single handed, and tired , you make the wrong dicisions.. there is no way you can go on without some sleep-minimum 3 hours at a time.

the second problem is the new -fast-going -ships, at 22 kn or more and often they do not give you the right-of-way...the time you have to make up your mind once you see a ship approacj\hing on the horizon is 10 min at the most! I usualy start the engine and get the boat OUT of the autohelm ...and I look at the ship as if she is totaly blind...and I keep away.

the last Q is what di you do when you go ashore when you are alone in a far away bay...what if the anchor drags? what if some young felow swims and climbs up and...etc
