Re: Boat Runs Aground With Person Dead On Board

Interesting story. Keep in mind that people die at every conceivable place you can think of - in front of their PC is pretty common these days, in the shower, on the toilet, at breakfast, yep, they tend to just die anywhere they please. My sister said I should sail single handed to the Florida Keys because I'm old and would be alone. she asked "What would you do if you were out in the ocean and had a fatal heart attack?" Well, I would just die, same as if I had a fatal heart attack anyplace else - fatal is fatal and you're dead - no two ways about it, alone or with someone, you're still dead. Damned, who woulda thunk it?

She brought him home. I hope she gets of the beach and someone takes good care of her.

I'd hope to be on the other tack and take her with me.

Re: Boat Runs Aground With Person Dead On Board

I know of a musician who died at a music festival, on stage. Probably unsettling for the fans of course, but he was older and could have died that night driving home. People die eventually, and if you are old enough and are going to die anyway, is it so bad if you are doing what you love.
