    If he did in fact go overboard, there is still a good chance he could be found once the waters warm in the next couple months.

    I just can't imagine the strain that puts on a family for closure.

    This is putting a lot of strain on me and a warning for me not to go out on the bay alone especially in the winter!!

    Definitely a sad situation... But imagine if mankind had just stopped doing something because it was "dangerous".. ( in some people's minds)
    I find it a reminder,,, Live life! but remember the risk. (try to reduce them inside of your limits)

    This is a very sad story and it makes me reconsider my safety measures.

    Besides wearing a pfd, there are a number of other safety technologies that would make solo boating a lot safer, and this instance makes me consider investing in some of that tech because my life is worth the investment.

    You have to consider how much you have invested in the boat and all the boating and fishing gear, how little it costs to purchase safety gear relative to the cost of owning and maintaining a boat, and what your life is worth to you and your family.

    I'm just replying to keep this thread at the top of this forum, hope it won't be long before some kind of closure is found.

    I'm guessing he never turned up?

    Thanks to all concerned. There has been no recovery.
