There are lobster pots in the harbors where we anchor, in the inlets to the harbors and even far out on the ocean. In July and August, the lobsters move to deeper water, so even 3 miles offshore, even with water depth of 240 feet, we find lobster pots. Sigh.

Under sail, running over a buoy isn’t a big deal, but the risk of wrapping the trapline around the props under power is scary. Of course, we were under power. That could ruin an otherwise only moderately miserable day on the water.
