kqc7011: When they "declined assistance from the Coast Guard and other boaters " Darwin took command of the situation.Instead of a couple of hundred dollar towing bill that the owner of the boat might have had to pay, the taxpayers are going to be stuck with the cost.And that will be a large bill with CG boats, helicopter time and clean up.Rough costs for one boat and one helicopter are, the small USCG HH-65 helicopters, around $5000 dollars per hour. A Coast Guard 41 foot boat, around $1500 dollars per hour.Wonder what the manpower and cleanup will run.Stupidity costs everyone.
