Re: NO PFDs
A guy fell off his center console, in Block Island Sound a few years back, exactly how you describe. No PFD. The boat was in gear, but trolling slowly. He tread water for 11 hrs and was rescued. No one knew he was overboard, until his boat drove up on the beach, hour later. Water temps were mid 70s and it was considered a miracle. In the 40s you would not successfully tread water for more than 15 mins Iím sure, as your muscles stiffen.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
