one more thing, if drifting, what is the "proper" distance to stay away from other boats who are also drifting?

It all depends on the other boat and the current or maybe some other structure in the area...
If you can hear them speak you are probably to close....
I wouldn't consider myself a pro but I've been lucky recently.....but the "Butts" are in...for how long NO-ONE-KNOWS....
Sofar the weather pattern I've seen has been nice and calm in the AM's and then the wind picks up in the afternoon....some FOG on some days...
Just check your weather station the day before usually helps
Hope this helps alittle....
