A friend of mine died on Monday.

An ex-coastie, Rick was the manager of a West Marine store. He recently finished a major overhaul of his 30' boat.... new engine, the works.

He went out alone and somehow he ended up overboard a half mile west of the harbor Monday mid-day.

No one knows why he fell over. Small swell, no wind.

A kayaker heard him yell for help in the water.

Rick drowned.

His boat drifted into the jetty and smashed to pieces.

Had Rick been wearing S.O.Spenders, or some kind of PFD I probably wouldn't be posting this.

It takes very little time to put on a vest or SOSpenders. It also takes very little time to drown.

SANO
