I would assume "frogging" means catching frogs. Usually done with a bright light at night. Rayne, La. about 60 miles or so from where the accident happened is the frog capitol of the world.
To answer Mule's question as to what the tow Capt. could have done was to have avoided the 14' boat by whatever means he thought prudent. I am absolutely sure he would have, if he had seen it. A 14' boat not underway is avoidable no matter where it was in the Canal. If it was a 14' log and he saw it he would have steered around it. Been there done all of that but did not get the Tee Shirt.
