    It's too bad a few bad apples can ruin the whole bunch , I still go out at night but I have to - keep alert , eyes peeled - and ears open - also ready to move quick if necessary,
    Bring rain gear !

      I don't usually run at night but I have a cabin boat and find it very satisfying to find a quiet cove to
      anchor for the night. There's really nothing as calming for me.

        In Missouri if you are born after Jan 1st 1984 you have to take a boater safety course to get a boaters license.

        Covers a lot of good info most of which you would think is common since. But common since ain't so common anymore.

          Kind of like riding a bicycle in the center lane of I-95 ?
