“Krill crazy after all these years”

Sleep was spotty as we again heard light tappings on the hull throughout the night. Kinda like in Poe’s “The Raven.” Or sleet during a wintry storm.

We experienced the same thing in Barnegat Bay many years ago and mentioned it to sailing friends. “Not to worry,” they advised, “It’s not errant electrical current, but tiny shrimp-like krill munching on the algae on the hull.”

Guess that $250/gallon bottom paint doesn’t include krill-repellent!
