K9, Probably not much of an issue for you in Florida, but up here in the PNW there's a lot a debris in the water, logs that come out of the rivers and off the beachs. Slow speed betters your odds of avoiding it, or of having less damage if you smack something. Worst case is hitting a 'deadhead', a partially submerged log that's very hard to see. Slow speed doesn't get you off the hook with these in many cases.
