That's what that 9 foot long fish with all the sharp teeth and the fin was, right? Seriously, a Great White Shark washed up on Madaket this week. I wonder how much a 6'2", 185lb diver in a black 2 piece looks like a yummy seal? I've heard sharks don't like the taste of people, but often mistake them for seals or otehr tasty morsels, so I'm thinking about taking out the paint pen and writing "Tastes Like Human" on the tank. You know, for safety's sake.

A surfer at the surface might be easy to mistake for a seal, but I don't think any shark worth it's salt would ever mistake a submerged, bubbly, metallic diver for something it usually eats.

Darn well hope not! Getting bit by a shark is NOT on my calendar this year. Maybe next summer.

My father taught me how to water ski in Vineyard Sound the morning after showing me and my sister Jaws for the first time! He was a sadistic man.....:smiley29:
