Biscayne National Park (FL)
Bodies Of Missing Father And Daughter Recovered From Bay

On Sunday, April 5th, Phillip Burke and his eight-year-old daughter Tara headed out on the bay in their 17-foot vessel with a raft attached to the stern. Burke had promised to spend a day on the water with his daughter since an earlier trip had to be canceled due to a flat tire on his boat trailer. They left Black Point Marina, located adjacent to the park

This is just so STUPID!

What is wrong with people that they would put their kids in such danger and not make them wear a life jacket?

There is NO excuse for things like this to happen.

almost sounds fishy?

Anyway, that is where I am now. I was considering a trip to Biscayne this weekend.
