How true that is. Negotiating the ICW between Miami and Palm Beach at trawler speeds, it's more likely one would pee oneself involuntarily than by any plan or intention! Just too many things to react to. I'm sure this type of thing is a far cry from what Kevin sees up North, but if you want to stay inside, a big bladder is an asset.
