Good point about getting on the boat. It has been discussed many times here but is relevant to the OP. I installed a telescoping ladder on my transom that can be pulled down from the water. If there's no one to turn the boat around and pick you up, at least you need to cling to the boat like a barnacle and have a plan to get back aboard.
