I was in Mission Bay yesterday and there were duck boats everywhere. I don't know for sure, but they may have switched from the Main Bay, to MB due to the no wake environment. I was going to post a few photos from my Drone, but it took a swim.

So true.

The point being that some training is better than none. And while impossible to build a sim that well exactly replicate a nasty ditching, there are things to do and not do to make it successful.

Perhaps if the capt of the duck boat were better trained on how to deal with nasty weather, there would have been a better outcome. Even some basic emergency procedures would have helped. From reading the reports on what happened, seems like he had no training at all.
