Doug - Yes indeed.  I can easily understand.

I don't know where you kayak, but in Woods Hole they are a real  
concern.  Apart from taking Woods Hole Passage on with its 4 knot  
currents and 3-4 foot standing waves, they seem oblivious to the fact  
that the big powerboats coming through the Hole at full tilt are  
focusing on the slower sailboats and the rocks at the edges of the  
channel.  Unless they are wearing a day-glo orange outfit (hardly ever  
seen one, BTW) the kayakers are all but invisible.
