As we completed our passage through the Blasket Sound we decided to eat the sandwich lunch which Mary had prepared before commencing the passage. And for a split second we took our eye off the ball and nearly paid a price!
Suddenly, a smaller than normal lobster pot appeared at Arthur'[s bow. Fortunately I was able to reverse before any damage was done. We focused on the job in hand and made our way to Dingle without any more close encounters!
