I gave up on mine. I reckoned that the SMB was more likely to kill me than a boat. The last thing that you need when swimming up a rocky gully on only a lung full, is a trail of string going to the surface. Trying to de-spear and bag a 3lb bass is tricky enough without those things in the way.

I keep tight to the rocks and have a good look If I hear the fizz of a prop in the vicinity.

Bollox to snorkeling anywhere near heavily trafficked boating areas.

Next time you see him see if you can quietly glue an AIS beacon onto his head, that way at least he'll appear on the plotter as you approach.
