And yes, I've done it. And no, I don't want to do it again.

A long time ago a VERY good longline pilot said to me: "I don't think you realize what a fragile bubble we dance on" At the time, he was right. I'm afraid I've become all too aware over the years.

Ah I should shut up, it's a cool video. HV curve be damned, I've spent my time in it and will spend a lot more. Here's hoping for the best.
