The guys calling for rescue are obviously a real bunch of clowns that had no business being offshore. I can not believe from the footage that that boat could not sail to safe port. Even if they were shipping water there were 5 aboard to man the pumps. I hope the owner skippper is not covered insurance wise. He has no business collecting on a boat he abandoned in that condition and that we will all have to pay for by higher insurance rates and taxes due to expenditures by the Coast Guard.

I myself was once rescued between Bermuda and Nantucket but in my case the boat sank from under us in the middle of the night and we did not deploy the EPIRB until we were in the raft and out of all other options.
