I'm not surprised actually. There is a huge number of people that only use their boat once or twice per year, some even less frequently than that. Hell, many of the boats in my boat lot are winterized already, and some I have NEVER seen moved. So for this guy to be totally unprepared doesn't surprize me at all."The boat captain did not know how to use his radio, had no charts, and was simply lucky his cell phone worked".
You gotta be kidding....what an idiot.
A few hours at the RED EYE could cause this.i agree with an earlier post. the crew was green (they didn't know the captn was clueless, were not dressed properly and sounds like they are easily seasick) and to take them out at night shows the captn had no clue what he was doing. i guess he didn't know it was blowin 20k since he couldn't use his radio and couldn't get a report and it probably wasn't windy in kent narrows. the captn and crew got off light, it could have been so much worse. thank God.
