Re: A couple wisely decides to head back in...
Growing up, in rough weather my Old Man was given to say:
"Kid, the boat's tougher than you are"
or, a slight variation:
"The boat can take it if you can"
It's been well-said here above, looks like the boat was tough enough and set up properly for the weather, but this experienced and seasoned crew of two, after getting a good taste of it, realized they didn't want to have to be that "tough" and run the risk of getting too cold and exhausted out there. Wise decision.
