    As my dad (retired Navy officer) used to say ALWAYS wear a life jacket, You cannot control what the weather or others boaters do. Sad

    What ever happened to both captains having look outs at all times and traveling at a safe speed for the conditions prevailing. Any captain worth a damn does not endanger others no matter how good he thinks his- because he’s not.

    90% of time both boats are at fault.
