Re: And so the season begins on Long Island Sound
Water temps are serious this time of year, more than most seem to realize.
However, I’m going to take a different look at this. A 10 ft inflatable should easily be rated for 4 or 5 people. They reportedly had life jackets on, so I’m not sure how we think they were unprepared or non-compliant. Seas in that pic don’t look that bad, although, pics can be deceiving.
I get the questions, but it doesn’t read all that outrageous to me. Not all boaters can afford a sport fisher to go fishing. If they were rednecks, with empty beer cans, no registration, etc, toss them in jail. Otherwise, they were just on the water and it bit back. No one is immune.
