Sea notes

July 5, 2018

I doubt there are many in Canada trying to sneak into the US these days. Those that are likely choose a more direct route than Machias Seal Island. So why are US border agents boarding Canadian fishing boats in those waters?

The image left shows rather clever and cute auto-deployed springs to save your phone from drop damage. But for anyone around water, they just make it more likely that a phone dropped on the deck or dock then bounces into the bay. What we sailors really need is a little, auto-inflate PFD.

My apologies to all Canadians for the authoritarian turn of the US government. I look forward to the day when we can again drive across the border, in either direction, without passport or political worry.
