Kayak Fatality

Posted by Ice - Phil on Mar 3, 2005

I've read fellow paddler's comments here and other boards and the Monday morning quarterbacks with the 'should've, could've' comments. Apparently they didn't have a VHF radio. I really don't know though. Did they have one, did it fall overboard, malfunction, have dead batteries (if so, why didn't they have fully charged spares), etc. etc. etc.?

Unless you were there and know the facts, don't speculate. Here is what one 17 year old said about the incident to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
