Man - the captain was foolish. A 21 foot boat 50 miles offshore? That is nutz.

How terrible for these men... they had fun fishing that far offshore before - they probably didn't even give it a 2nd thought - being so far out, etc

I have a 21 foot boat - and I've never taken it more than 10 miles offshore - on a very clear day and calm day - with other fishing boats within a mile or two. 10 miles in a small boat out on the ocean (of Gulf) is way far
