    From cnn.com:
    The Coast Guard found a person clinging to an overturned boat off of Florida's Gulf Coast.
    This is currently a developing story on CNN's website.
    CNN confirmed live on-air a few minutes ago that the person found was Nick Schuyler,one of the four men that was on the boat.

    Too easy to miss them in the dark, since there's no mandatory strobe on civilian lifejackets...

    Well I hate to say it but it doesn't look good...The doctor said surviving in 63 degree water for 46 hours, he could have only survived for about 5 to 10 hours more.

    Let's hope this accident raises people's awareness about boating safety, particulalry off-shore. First off, study the weather closely before going off-shore, particularly in a small boat like that one. Secondly, buy an EPIRB and keep it maintained (batteries charged / replaced) if you're going to go off-shore. $1400 is some mighty cheap life insurance.
