Nah, just use those electronic whale repellers. They are a bit like those things ya put on cars at the front to scare kangaroos away.

How terribly sad, sitting and watching your yacht disappear to the bottom. His wife couldn't even watch. Thankfully there were some fellow travelers close by to help out.
