ARRGG, another cautionary tale. I read these too frequently. They both disregarded weather reports and one did so with a questionable amount of fuel and his family onboard. There always seem to be at leasts one of two common denominators in these stories, (typically both):
1) Disregarded weather
2) Trying to make a schedule
If you think not making to <insert name> Cove will ruin your weekend, try drowning, loosing your loved one, loosing the boat, or all of the above. I'd rather be laughed at at the marina for not going out, than mourned for doing so.
