Re: The Difference Between an Inshore and Offshore Boat. Would you take a Boat l...

If the hull was found were any bodies ever found? A floating body with a bright orange vest would be hard to see but not impossible.

Anyone know how long a body would float with a life vest on? Or how long a body would float before it became fish food? A few days, a week, a month?

Just wonder what the chances are of finding any bodies.

You'd have to be actively scanning.. for days.. or come across it by pure chance.. and the seas would need to be pretty settled... small objects are all but invisible over 1/4 mile away..

The head will be bird food..
Fish..? depends on what comes across it..
