Yep! I WAS wrong!

I stated that he had just as good a chance of being bitten away from the pier as at the pier.

In fact, a cursory glance at either the U.S. Navy Shark Attack file or the International Shark Attack File show that statistically, he has a BETTER chnace of being bitten away from the pier. Less than 5% of shark attacks take place at piers and docks.

Yes, sharks congregate around any underwater structure that attracts fish. That does not equate to being where the vast majority of attacks occur.
