Re: Getting Lifeslinged

As long as I live I will never forget the frantic channel 16 calls of a boater whose German Shepherd had fallen overboard near dusk. Within 15 minutes it would be impossible to see the dog and he was a couple miles offshore. The radio calls persisted for a couple of hours and finally ceased.
Please don't take a pet onboard without a life preserver.
