Reminds me of a photo I took on the train outside Donaueschingen in May :)

I didn't know it was a real place.

I've been there. Gorgeous place. I forget exactly what the deception was.

Vancouver thought it was a safe inner passage up the Sound and then he got to where it necks down and pushes your boat at like 12 knots.

I watched an asshole in a Bayliner attempt to impress his friends as the tide was coming in. He roared up under the bridge, pushed the throttle to flank, stalled out, tried to whip around in a dignified manner and nearly ate it on the rocks. The coast guard can do it and a decent enough powerboat has no problem, but even modern pleasure boaters can get themselves in a heap of trouble without realizing it.
