Not everyone lives on an ocean shore you know.

I know.
Some of the nastiest conditions on the water that I've ever experienced have been on fresh water lakes.
And, I've seen conditions change in a hurry on inland lakes as well.
The Great Lakes can provide (well-known) horrendous conditions, but for most of us, those are fresh-water seas, not lakes.

A healthy amount of respect is a good thing, IMO - no matter where I paddle, so I like to have some 'alternative strategies' in the toolbox, just in case. :-)
