Wanted: Pontoon Boat Trailer

The old SYC pontoon boat trailer was stolen earlier this year. So we are in need of another one. Please speak up if you are aware of anything that might work. Arrangements are in the works to rent the trailer in the photo so we can get the RC boat out of the water for the winter.

Cold water survival
This is a good time of year to bring the 1 - 10 - 1 rule for cold water survival front and center again.

"It is impossible to get hypothermic in cold water unless you are wearing flotation, because without flotation – you won't live long enough to become hypothermic."

The rule
* 1 minute to get panic and breathing under control
* 10 minutes of physical ability to save yourself
* 1 hour of consciousness left

and that is with a life jacket on. It is a good rule to remember. Here is a good video by the USCG Auxiliary

Cold water Boot Camp: The 1 - 10- 1 rule 

According to the experts, 40% of the cold water drownings occur within 6 feet of a dock or boat. 

The guy I found yesterday was only a few yards from the SYC main dock and probably would still be alive if he has been wearing a life jacket.
