Well, partly because our planes cost many, many millions of dollars and are designed and built by people who know what they're doing and the planes have to meet a whole bunch of very rigid requirements, where the auto-inflate key floats are made by a guy in China in his living room.

And partly because a slip neighbor bought one not long ago, his keys fell in the water, and the auto-inflate float didn't do either one.

I have two sets of key rings, partly because I have some many danged keys, but also to carry spare keys for the house, work and vehicles. This has saved my fanny a bunch of times just from locking one set of keys in the truck.

When we travel, we split up keys and money to make sure the loss of one minimizes a chance for a bigger problem.

Later,
Dan

I have seen her since she lost her keys. We did try with a magnet and boat hook. 8 t0 10 feet of water and very soft mud. Found nothing but junk and we were at it for over two hours. Very smart interest lady who made a mistake. Her husband was just rude to her and never thanked any one on the dock who tried to help. Her hurry was explained by sale in Christianna Mall.
