some people have no sense of value for their own lives. We say a guy on a JETSKI out west of desperation reef on Sunday afternoon...........blowing up a helium balloon. I guess the line between "brass balls" and "I gotta catch one regardless of safety" has become somewhat blurred....... but hey, more power to them! Fortunately, for now, it's still AMERICA and you have the right to do what you think is safe, right?

Honestly, I was keeping an eye on them for as long as I could. On the way in I heard a CG call for a vessel in distress but thank god it wasn't near where they would be going.

I have been out further than that.... but in a while 16' WHALER.... With heavy foam filled hull. Aluminum boat.. brass ones for sure. But....like MIKEY..... I can't blame them. If you get a big BFT.... put it in neutral.... tuna would be bow pulling that boat around for sure. Pull a "fattie" over the gunnel..... 3 guys on the other side.... One guy pulling....lol..... just not to flood it. Probably wouldn't be pretty.

Just fillet it in the water! Then pull in the parts!

I don`t know about being out that far in a tin boat , we can`t predict mother nature nor can we depend on the weather forcast , In my younger years I used to say if you can see it you can swim to it , I don`t think it`s having big Balls I think it`s a couple of beers short of a six pack

Doing marine patrol out of Dana Harbor in a 26-footer, running out west of San Clemente Island all the way to the Cortez Bank on one occasion, I saw some pretty strange choices made. My Lieutenant would shake his head and say, "This is America. You have a constitutional right to be stupid."

Rogue wave almost flipped my 19.5 foot boat near the 43. Don't think that aluminum boat would have made it.

I used to do that fishing blue marlin at the east cape. Then I grew up, built a sizeable net worth, and things changed. I sorta miss that nothing to lose era. Damn!
