I’m lost. 20’ makes you nervous so you use your boat length to reassure you that 20’ isn’t really that deep?
Hell I don't know i was sitting in the boat rigging up and drinking some beers think the sun may have got to me
. Deep water doesn't bother me Just coming off a specific body where you can catch them <10' year round it takes me a second to adjust. So yes giving myself a physical thing to reference helps with that. Start approaching 50 and i might get a little uneasy.
