    Thank goodness they found them!~BUT remember~THERE is EXACTLY why we NEED Govt.and taxes~to PAY for them~without Govt.~no one would BE THERE when we get in a mess!NOBODY TO RESCUE US WITHOUT THE MONEY&MEN&EQUIPMENT OUR TAX MONEY HAS TO PAY FOR!~I personally do NOT want to call EMERGENCY 911 AND HAVE NOBODY ANSWER BECAUSE THERE IS NO TAX MONEY TO PAY FOR IT AND NO GOVT TO RUN IT! LORD!

    True~one could wonder,I suppose,what the fellows were doing out there~but probably nothing wrong~as in "probably best to see a lot of situations as "glass half full~rather than half empty" till we would know something different.

    That's actually not unusual for deep sea fishing. You need to be at least 75 miles for certain fish, and it's not unusual to be out that far, even for a day trip.
