Wow- this thread really devolved into a cynical joke-fest. I admit, though, I'm laughing a little. Sad for the missing guy, if he is.

Of course it is sad for the missing guys family. He is oblivious one presumes.

Nonetheless when something like this happens it is really hard not to see the humerous side, as seemingly unfeeling as that may be.

"Fisherman rescues missing yachtsman in Qld June 30, 2011 - 11:09PM
.AAP

A Western Australian man who plunged overboard from a catamaran which was moored off the central Queensland coast has been rescued by a local fisherman.

Emergency services launched a major search and rescue operation on Thursday night after a woman, who was also onboard the vessel, reported the 55-year-old man missing.

He fell from the boat while it was anchored off Turkey Beach, about 50 kilometres southeast of Gladstone, shortly after 7pm (AEST).

A Turkey Beach fisherman who had joined the search found the man on a sand bar.

He was cold and tired but otherwise unhurt, Queensland Police said."

But for the Grace of God they go I. We will all meet our end one day, enjoy it while it lasts, I speak from experience. To go while sailing could be viewed as a blessing, but then considering the whole watching the boat sail away then the being left adrift in the deep with our finned friends...damn, this is tragic. I almost hope the wife did him in.
