Fishermen in the Typhoon Shelter





Small boats of every description and condition are used by fishermen to weave their way between the larger moored junks and and yachts in the Typhoon Shelter.  It is not unusual to see them paddled slowly with a single oar to come along side of "Watermark" and her buoys. It's not considered bad manners at all to fish in the shade of her hull, and not unusual to look out the below deck portholes to see a fisherman looking back at eye level.

Hand lines, rather that poles, are the preferred choice.   I've seen small fish, and squid, pulled up right next to "Watermark".
