Re: Fishing Boat Carrying NFL Players Reported Missing in Florida
I can't think of many worse ways to go than this. The ocean is so vast and not knowing what's beneath. I was just watching Cast Away the other night and I got sick to my stomach watching the part where he's just sitting on the raft as it just breaks apart in the middle of the ocean.
We go up to Northern Michigan every year to a place called Torch Lake. This lake is narrow, but deep. You can be walking along the sand bar, nearly a mile out and it then all of a sudden it drops 250-300 feet deep. I get a little freaked out when I ski out in that deep point. Laying in that cold water, knowing how deep it is. And that's with a life jacket on and knowing you are in fresh water (no sharks) and the boat is seconds away from picking you up.
I can't imagine just floating in the ocean like that.
