    "Just trust me" one guy says to the other. And so they jump off the cliff together because it just looked like fun.

    You go, Mike. Glad to see you have crew and you're on the way home with Jacqueline. Let us know when you're back in hailing range

    Yes, I know, it was a dumb thing to do.

    Fathoms!!! Which brings me to a funny story. When we were mid transit of the gap the driver asks me " what did you say this boat draws?" I was kind of hyperventilating at that point and did not hear him clearly. When we got through he says "gee whiz, I was seeing six feet on the depth sounder." Fortunately he was looking at speed, not depth. It was minimum 30 feet throughout. Having said that, there was a 5 foot cross swell which made things really interesting.

    I am truely sorry I gave in to a moment of weakness. It won't happen again

    And, yes, I absolutely blame Skip Allen!!!

    What would your Indonesian client say about that? "Uh, can I request a new account executive? I don't trust this one's judgement."
