The View From the Tugboat Bridge
Demonstrating one of the real issues kayaks pose for large commercial vessels. You do see the kayaks, right? But they look kind of miniscule, right?
It's aggravating that the Chicago incident may have been misreported in a way that overblew the situation and made the outfitters in the area look far less responsible than they actually were, but the WSJ article still had points. Capt. Brucato sent this along as a demonstration on Facebook - I thought it was pretty good shot. If you're kayaking urban waterways, you should always assume you're invisible - 'cause you pretty much are.
