Other than that, I enjoyed the whole cruising thing.
Stories like that freak me out. Had a friend tell me a guy crashed into the side of his Kettenburg on a jetski. Killed the jetskier instantly and left a huge hole in the side of the boat they patched up with caulking and plywood until they could make a real repair. He was going to stay and argue with the jet skier's family but a local cop told him to bail as the jet skier was some politician's kid. I'm really hoping for a boring cruising life.
