I"m the guy with two kayaks and paddles on the roof, one surfboard in the cabin, an e-purb & handheld radio ready to go. Will my boat sink mid-channel? Hell no. But that's hardly the point. Just like your excessive anchor chain in your anchor locker, there's a good amount, then there's enough.... and then there's more than enough and you go enjoy your overnight or island hike.How many of you actually carry a life raft onboard?
If you don't, what is the #1 reason you don't?
