From time to time we see people here who do not like to follow rules...
They don't want to get an electrical permit.
They don't want to get a building permit.
They don't want to be "told" how to do things, don't want to follow advice
So what happens when someone like this buys a boat and goes out into the
I'm finding out! I found an older book at a used bookstore called "The Boat
Who Wouldn't Float" by Mowat.
I've read about half the book. At this point they are out in the ocean at
night, fog all around and can't see 10 ft., their compass does not work
right because they never tested it before installing it, no radar, no 2-way
radio, the batteries in their flashlight are run down and they don't have
spare batteries, their engine won't start, the boat is leaking and they
don't have adequate pumps to pump out the water, they did not start their
journey with maps of the area, and the only reason they are going the
direction they are going is another boat passed by, stopped, and told them
which direction they should be going!
Somehow they lived through this to tell their story.
Anyway I now fully understand "the mystery" of the Bermuda Triangle". No
mystery at all!
