Rescue on Lake Heron

Here is a great rescue story from Michigan. The first post is about what the rescuers did right and what they could have done better. Start reading at the second post to see what transpired during the rescue. What's so cool about the post is that they have the radio transmissions between the CG and their boat Time Machine. If you go to the bottom of the second post you can hear all the transmissions in one place. The crew also received the Hanson Award for their rescue. When the rescuee asked the rescuer if he could give him a reward for saving him, the rescuer replied, "Just seeing you and your son, alive and here aboard TIME MACHINE is the biggest reward I could possible get. Helping you is what sailors do for each other". What a great line! Read the full story here.

Sorry to be such a stickler, but it's Lake "Huron." Otherwise it's a great story.
