Florida Boat, Yacht and Personal Watercraft Insurance
In 10 Seconds, The Boat Drifted 20 Feet
Recently a four friends took a their 21ft Fishing boat out on a beautiful Florida Sunday afternoon. The ocean was calm like a lake that day so they went about 2 miles offshore looking for "weed lines" to drop a quick line and test their luck for a quick fish. There wasn't any signs of fish and they decided to take a quick dip in the ocean before heading back in. Enjoying their day, they all jumped in together on a whim. All four of them. Before the boat was anchored.
As soon as the captain hit the water, he realized what they had done. By the time he began furiously swimming toward the boat, it had already drifted 20 feet. . Three passengers were found by the Coast Guard the next morning. And a shipping vessel passing through found the captain treading water several miles from where the boat was found the following afternoon; the boat had drifted 9 miles south.
