Boat rescue in Australia

A testament to preparedness, a shame to lose a boat, but all survived quite well...

How fast it happens

Here's a story from down under of 2 fellows out fishing on a 40' boat with their 11 year olds when they see black smoke from their engine. 50 seconds later the boat is gone under and they're in the water. Cool heads and experience had them getting PFD on themselves and the kids, getting off a Mayday, grabbing a cooler for floatation and most of all grabbing the EPIRB. All alive, well and planing to go back out fishing tomorrow.TODAY Video Player

Thanks for passing that along... 50 seconds is amazing... goes to show when things go bad it can happen in a hurry!
