Brendan,

They did have a VHF radio but panic and lack of basic boating skills ruled and the boat's skipper didn't even think of calling the CG. She was in shock and the young man was also inexperienced and too busy bailing to do anything else.

I truly believe there ought to be a required boater's safety course before anyone is permitted to drive a boat anywhere. I'm not suggesting having to pay for a license. You get it after passing a CG approved course. Of course that will cost somebody some money, so maybe a small fee would be required. There are just too many clueless people driving boats and PWC out there.

Dan
