Ode to FAD

Cruising through Indonesia

In search of paradise

Beware the floating piles of junk

The dreaded fish-attracting-device!

The FADs are lurking everywhere

With bamboo to mark their spots

Running into one at 5 knot speed

Would cause damage to our yachts

Deep or shallow it doesn’t matter

They put them everywhere

To entice the fish swimming by

They want to catch their share.

So with eyes peeled we search the surface

Looking for the Flags

We need to avoid collision

With the dreaded floating FADs!
