Re: USCG Rescues Sailors Off Bahamas VIDEO

Always something to be learned ... appears when the boaters in their PFDs floated free of the hard aground vessel, they employed some sort of painter attached to the boat. Good idea, since if the hoist failed, at least they were not going to drift out to sea. Filed away in my abandon ship notes.
