The big deal is that I donít want to put anyoneís life or safety at risk. I know that Catalina is close but thatís still a lot of water between the island and the mainland. My reason for asking those questions is that Iím fairly new to boating. Iíve only had my boat for about a year now and I want to get as much advice as possible from more experienced people. Like any responsible boater, I have flares, plenty of life jackets, lights, horns, etc. I also have Vessel Assist. But Iíve been dead in the water (DIW) before and I just want to see if there are some things I havenít considered prior to heading out. Naturally, anyone will gain confidence with experience. After going out there once or twice, Iím sure Iíll be a lot less leary. My friends often accuse me of "acting like an old lady" because I always try to err on the side of caution. Anyway, thanks for the input. Heading out to Catalina is definitely on the to do list.
