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!
