N 35°45’, W 133°29’

Have you ever dropped anything? Sure you have. Have you ever dropped something 16,402 feet? I didn’t think so. As we were cruising along, I happened to zoom in on the chartplotter to see if it had any information about the area we were cruising in and noted that we were over some pretty deep water. So why not? I got a penny (Canadian penny, eh!), and dropped it overboard. And it sank 16,402 feet, give or take a foot or two. I wondered how long it took to reach the bottom and if anything noticed it hit the bottom.
