Re: Info. for Guests Aboard

I keep it simple;
-Stay on the boat, the Delaware River kills a hand full of people every year.
-Stay on the boat, I don't want to waste sailing time explaining things to the police when your body is recovered.
-Don't jump from boat to dock, if you go in the water we probably won't recover the body until you have been dragged under the boats on the other side of the fairway.

How do I know this, well while taking some stray line of my prop while wearing a PFD and a rope attached to a dock cleat I was being dragged under the floating dock until pulled out by a neighbor.
