Re: dnf because of county police boat?

I grew up on the Hudson back in the 50's and 60's. A different world for sure. The Croton River was my home. We were charter members of the River Rat Club, now known as the Croton Yacht Club. I played, sailed and hunted on the Hudson from Bear Mt. to Piermont. My first "big boat" sailing experience was with Bernie Lewis on Haverstraw Bay. Things were simpler then! Great time to enjoy those environs. I can remember the center span of the Tappanzee Bridge being "settled" in place using the tide. Cool!

I have to believe that our feeling of "wide open space and freedom" would be much different today. It is a beautiful river! We are planning a cruise up the Hudson in the future and were considering attending my 50th hs reunion next fall by sailing to Croton.

Yikes!

Not to be cruel, but I'm thinking Darwin Award on this one.
Well I have to agree to the Darwin Award if it was the operator who had died, unfortunately that was not the case. If they were out in daylight he should have known that the barges were there. Part of situational awareness, and shame on him if he is not aware of notices to mariners. Though I have never seen a set of charts on a small power boat, and most users likely unable to read one. Besides they don't do much good when you are blasting away in the dark.
