Missing Boaters Found

This was on CNN this morning:

Missing boaters found alive off Texas coast - CNN.com

They stayed with the boat and were lucky.

Points up the importance of leaving a "float plan" with someone ashore. At least the CG would have had a better chance of beginning the search in the right area versus not having a clue as to where they might be.
