Well this one got off track fast.
If I read the sequence of posts correctly the reference to being laid back was in response to excursions in the dinghy
while on a gunkholing trip down a delta
Not sure why that should be construed to mean inattentive seamanship while underway in a busy channel with watercraft out and about.
Nor were a couple of responses to that very polite or necessary as well.
I hope to be cruising up the rivers in Alabama
this year, looking forward to it greatly.
