Re: How to sleep

Am wondering about the storm tactics employed and storm equipment carried by the boats that needed to be rescued. I can understand boats being close to shore, disabled, and concerned about being thrown up on rocks but those who push the button on an EPIRB simply because they have a ripped sail seem to be bailing WAY too soon. The cost of "rescuing" those who are not equipped to be offshore and who have not employed every available option before calling for a C130 will surely cause legislation and rules to affect all of us.
