When you’re sailing the narrows, you better pay attention. Most of the problems we have are from carelessness; not focusing on the details or getting distracted. Stay on the bridge and keep a steady wheel. Guide yourself through the things that can cause problems. Know where they are and stay away from them. When we had a boat, we lived on a branch of a large lake. Within that branch of water were tree stumps under the water. You had to know where they were or you could easily break a propeller on one of them. They were left there to keep fools from speeding. The big lake was for that. I saw many a boat over time that kissed the stumps and were damaged leaving their 'sailors' less than happy. Know where you are and what might be waiting for you.
