    Super sad - but every time I see a group of wave runners mid channel I always scratch my head based on thought process of looking at marine forecast etc.

    Had at least 2 instances of finding them in pea soup fog confused with no idea how to get back to home port.

    Very sad, those guys haul ass and can easily see getting pitched off at speed and by the time you get your wits about you, the ski being too far away. Helmets/goggles reduce peripheral vision too, only reason I can think that no one noticed him come off. Wonder if that short weather window tricked them, as I was loading up the lobster gear when the deluge opened up and decided to put the boat back in the garage instead.

    I read stories like this and think, 'how the hell did this happen', then I realize I was 20 once too and just by luck this wasn't me. Going to be tough on his friends second guessing not going back and looking for him sooner.
