    Lake Erie is a dangerous place, period. I've crossed that lake on the ferries to the Canadian Island, it rocked so bad you couldn't stand up. That's with like 25 cars & vans on it, Hell man, Lake Erie has major freighters on it's bottom that have sunk.

    To go out on Lake Erie very far from shore in a small boat is a disaster waiting to happen. Lots of people get away with it, but lots don't. I'm always surprised at the number of people who go out on Lake Erie in small boats to try to fish in questionable weather. The weatherman will say it's a bad idea, and tell the chance of storms, & estimated winds, but people will still go out. I don't understand that, I realy don't.

    These people see the weather forecasts, then go out anyway, then we read about them in the newspaper or hear about them on the news, either someone dies or narrowly escapes death, the Coast Guard or Fire Departments rescue people who have to be brought out.

    The classic is when it rains in buckets, the rivers are SO HIGH, and a few idiots decide to go kyaking or canoeing. Amazing, for sure, isn't it?

    I think using steel wire to fly kites during a thunderstorm will be the next fad.

    I'm really happy that our 2 friends here that started this thread are okay, obviously. But I'd wager to say that better planning would have saved them a whole lot of grief, and a whole lot sooner.
