Shopping for fishing reels
Well, no, we’re not really shopping for reels, although maybe it would help our fishing. I was instead just thinking about the mnemonic which describes the pecking order for right of way on the water:
New Reels Catch Fish So Purchase Some – or NRCFSPS.
- Nuc (Not Under Command)
- Ram (Restricted In Ability To Maneuver)
- Cbd (Constrained By Draft)
- Fishing. (Commercial only, all types except trolling)
How often do we run into seaplanes when out on the water? Well, so far we haven’t but interestingly there is a seaplane landing strip in the bay leading towards our marina.
And you can see in a the pic below a couple of our dock neighbours who were in the marina several weeks ago. So it is possible. Even though the mnemonic above indicates that we have right of way over a seaplane, I’m pretty sure that we’d be working to get out of his way!
One thing I found interesting was watching the seaplanes get into their slip. After cutting the engines nearby the pilot actually got out on the pontoon with a paddle to get his plane close enough to throw a line to shore.
On an entirely different topic, we have been successfully avoiding the thunderstorms that have been occurring every afternoon for the past few days. As a reward last night we were treated to this beautiful rainbow overtop of our friends’ boat, Pirate Jenny.
