Re: Bryan Chong's first hand recount of the Low Speed Chase tragedy

Having been tossed around in whitewater like a rag doll on more than one occasion, in a fraction of the volume of water in pounding surf crashing on rocks, I agree with Smackdaddy: stay on the boat. This may be the most important lesson from the tragedy. Makes one wonder what happened to the blow-up vests!

Alberg 35: With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship.
