and that is that it pays to know what to expect from those around you. I've seen lots of folks in kayaks who didn't seem to understand the visibility issues, rules of the waterway, etc. of large ships, as well as the performance differences between different styles of boats (sail, motor, PWC, etc.).

For example, it is amazing how slowly large ships seem to be moving and how quickly they can travel to the where you are on the water (their size and speed are both really deceptive). I've seen more than one kayaker think that they could cut across a body of water before the ship could reach them.
