Battered Boater Endures Storm
A valiant sailor endures serious danger and discomfort because of the failure of the rescue services function. Well! A person with unrevealed boat experience, with a sizable unfamiliar vessel, in presumably unfamiliar waters, presumably without a current chart of the area, presumably ignoring the serious weather indications, single-handed into an expected gale area and ran aground. He suffered difficulties before being hauled out of his situation. The ordinary result of such conduct results: investigation of the conduct of the emergency responders!
