10 People?

Whether it was 9 or 10 people, it was about 5 too many. Can't believe a rental company would have let that many people on board, unless they didn't know.

Don't know the details, but just should serve as a reminder that everyone on your boat should know how to swim or at least be wearing a PFD...especially on a rental...Macgregor...in cold water....with children

Would you drive your car full of people with no doors or seatbelts on the edge of a cliff knowing that one bump or slip could send someone to their death?
