My guess is you have no open water experience. Live free and stupid and die. Unless of course one of the idiots has your kids on board. Safety is always a worthy discussion. If for no other reason than to remind us of things we may have started to overlook. I was on Shem Creek last night. Saw a family of 8 plus on a bowrider. 4 kids under 6 without PFDs. Bad juju.
