Don't know if anyone here is familiar with the Cape Cod Canal--it's illegal for anything without power, but coming in the other day in the boat, I see this little kayak paddling across the canal, just outside the marina, near the mouth of the east end.Horrified doesn't begin to describe my feelings on seeing that guy. Incredibly, very few boats were chugging thru at that moment, just me and another good size boat. The Coast Guard was close to him (but not close enuf to swamp) and threw him a life jacket, then followed him into the marina. I'm sure to fine him. But not even a PFD????? My God, WHAT was he thinking?? Usually you can count on a few tankers coming thru and waking even a smaller power boat.I can't get that sight out of my mind! Feel like he was very very lucky that he lived to get a ticket..??

Just kidding. I wear mine in the bathtub.

In an earlier time that would be the person who'd pet the nice kitty cat and get eaten. Some people have absolutely zero common sense.

wow, sounds like a bad idea. No PFD anywhere is stupid, and being in a waterway with restrictions as such and large craft is very dangerous indeed. Thanks for the post, and stay safe everyone.
