The title of this post is from a thrash tune by the band called "Testament". Part of the song's lyrics go:
"Our ship sailed on through the violence-bearing seaNot knowing of the danger waiting there in store for me
We wound up all in mayhem, the vessel tossed and turned
The compass that had led us, we watched it slowly burn"
This guy is definately brave to be in such a small craft in waters such as these.
