I've had tense moments. Had a seal come up and blow about six feet away and give me a start. Once has a jet-skier almost run me down and once I misjudged a strong tide and it got so bad I was barely able to get back to the ramp. I had visions of calling the coast guard on my cell as I was being swept out to sea.

1) I had a 25-30 ft whale cruise 3' below me in 15 ft of water, it was a moment to remember.
2) Of course ... never make friends with a harbor seal, they won't leave you alone!
3) I've had my baffle tube punctured on two different sessions, and being punctured for the first time in 65'-75' of water and 1/4 mile from my launch made me a bit urgent at that particular time.
But since, I've learned that even with a small puncture or two and the loss of psi, I still had 2+ hours to fish on the Cumberland before having to call it quits and end the session due to a deflating baffle.

Of course ... the circling dorsal fins ... did help with my decision making at the time!!  lol
I don't know if I could say the same about my Fish Cat Deluxe 4 FT.
