There`s a frightening thought. I once owned a Santana 22 "yacht",one day we got into some weather, green water flowing both sides of the leeward winch....not a day you forget, in small yachts.

No cure for stupid. Last year in Maryland a family rented a cruiser for a day. No experience. The father's hat blew off and he jumped in to retrieve it while in gear - leaving his wife and child aboard a vessel underway. He drowned in the process. To the good fortune of his family, a samaritan was able to catch up, board the now dead man's boat, bring it to a stop. No PFD, float plan, nothing. Multiple failures that became fatal.
