Dangerous logs

One of our main worries during fast navigation in search for dolphins is crashing our inflatable into one of these large logs. The risk of a collision off the Po delta is not insignificant, because branches and whole trees are carried downstream by the river and end up drifting at sea (not always as visible as the particular log shown here). Crossing this part of the Adriatic on a small speedboat requires extra attention.
