I am writing this as an old friend is in the hospital recovering after his boat swamped, and then flipped, in Long Island's Shinnecock Inlet. Chris is lucky to be alive, having been pulled from the water by Ryan Horowitz--the 21 -year old son of another friend. Both Chris and Ryan are expert boaters, in my opinion. Born to it, and out on the water both as professional fisherman and recreational anglers every week. My point is that stuff can happen to the best of us.
