I have to agree. The following has already been offered by individuals considerably more eloquent and gracious than myself, but I see no harm in agreeing and reiterating. I think there are several constructive points within this thread (none that I argued, unfortunately):

2) Understand the rules of navigation, and
3) Stay the hell away from anything bigger and faster than your kayak!
