Bess and I discussed this while I took her to the airport this morning. It would be nice if people read the max passenger signage and followed by it. I'll bet insurance will not be covering this.

**EDIT** I found this @ AOL: The 34-foot Silverton yacht was made in 1984 but was "a very recent purchase," he said... the boat should have had a life jacket for each person on board. But authorities could not determine if the boat had 27 life jackets because the vessel remained under water. Police said it capsized and then drifted a bit before it sank in about 60 feet of water.

Can you imagine 27 people on this?
