A Near Collision
A few days ago, we came the closest to having a collision yet. The strange thing was, we were just sitting there. We were on a mooring, not moving, and were just about to set out on a dinghy trip around the bay. We were having some trouble with the outboard, namely, it flooded and when we tried to fix it by cranking it without the fuel line, we didn't put the fuel connector on properly and it let air in. While we were messing with it, we noticed a small catamaran motoring directly at us. There seemed to be no one at the helm, the only person on deck was taking a picture of a yacht to his stern. Eventually Dad had to shout to get him to notice us, and then he barely got his boat stopped in time to avoid a collision. You really need to be careful in an anchorage, and this was a perfect example of what not to do when entering a harbor.
