  1. This is the scary thing about boats and pontoons for hire. It's best to have secured lifeboats before sailing in order to prevent accidents. Good thing no one was seriously hurt in this tragic event.

    It is a very good news that these boaters were saved! There is really a need for our marine officers to invest on different supplies for rescue, boat pontoons, and training for first aid. Be careful next time boaters!
