    What scares me most?

    Reading this thread!

    I was fine before but now I'm going to need therapy before I leave the river again.

    Falling off the edge of the world. That's why I never managed further than N. Brittany. I heard that the earth is still flat there.

    Opening my wallet when anywhere near the boat gives me the biggest scare.
    Shipping a few greenies while out for a blast last Sunday was very soothing by comparison.

    Meeting MOBOS with twin 300HP outboards and with no ideas about Colregs.......

    Hold your line to find out which side they will blast past 5metres away?

    Mobos still frighten me but now it's foiling sail boats! Sometimes it's impossible to tell which tack they're on.
