Re: Near miss on Lake Michigan

The boat is a Rhodes 19. They have some flotation but are not self bailing. This isn't the first time for this guy. Last early May he pulled the same stunt. Went out for a sail on his birthday with friends. Wife got worried and found capsized boat in Lake Michigan. CG found him unconscious floating in his life jacket. Hospitalized that time for hypothermia. For a guy 63 years old you would think that he would have more sense.
