Re: Coast Guard rescues 4 "sailors" off Charleston...

I can't comment if the Captain should have called for rescue. I wasn't there.

I do believe that any captain or crew getting on a strange boat, should have in his sea bag, a GPS, a VHF handheld with weather radio, flashlights, batteries, emergency food and water, first aid kit, and a few tools and even a quart of two of motor oil. Sail needles, and thread would be smart also. I consider that my ditch bag also, and always have it where I can see it.
