No, I'm not sure.

I would have taken my radio (seriously, what were they thinking?) and I would have brought the skiff to shore seeing the approaching storm. So based on what I do know about that case, I chalk it down to lack of prudence on the part of the skipper. Of course, that is just an opinion based on limited information.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Re: harrowing story

First, glad all survived and commend the captain for his swim. I was out that evening as helmsman on sailboat. Saw storm approaching and suggested run for shelter on western shore, which was overridden by owner. Weather was severe and when it hit twenty minutes later it was too late for reassessment. We had no injuries or equipment failures but, it was not a safe situation even on 34' with full keel.

If you see it coming, respect mother nature and if possible seek shelter. Radio, with weather alerts is a must. Good news is a carolina skiff will stay afloat and staying with the boat, always the proper choice.

Thanks to the rescuers for job well done.

Re: harrowing story

Even minimal flare kit might have summoned help. These folks had no business being on the water, with kids no less.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Re: harrowing story

Boating really is a great example of Darwinism in action, isn't it?
But I guess, in today's modern, civilized society we can't just let nature take is course, can we?
