    Forgive me for looking askance at this well-intended note:
    but the first rule for advice-takers concerning risky pursuits is:
    Has the advice-giver got any personal experience in the class of
    vessel, over the intended route?
    If not, I rely on my wife, who  can easily over rule my experience
      in sailing a small boat into a Mediterranean gale, in favor of her own
    cautious approach: she will not board even a power launch on a calm
    lake more than once in five years!
