Re: man overboard

Thanks for the link. Good video. The guy was lucky he was so close to shore. Could have been a very different outcome.

Re: man overboard

Very lucky.

Wonder why none of them saw the squall coming?

Re: man overboard

Lucky he was in *warm* water as well as being close to shore.
I'm also wondering why no one noticed the squall coming.
