Guest - no you can't, not if you've drowned. Still, I wouldn't worry about icebergs! I've been told the biggest hazard in the English Channel (and north of it) are other ships ... Personally, the worst thing I've encountered in 30 years of crossing to and fro were an engine failure and a broken leg (not mine, I'm glad to say, and it was extremely interesting to turn back to Newcastle two hours from the land and watch the poor stricken lady and her friends being transferred to a port authority speedboat just outside the harbour ...). So watch your steps, boys 'n' girls! We want you here hale (not to mention hearty)!
