I am discontinuing the news portion of this blog. I will keep it open and make occasional posts on safe boating, or significant accidents, but I no longer have the time to devote to this Blog in the way I feel I should. I have installed a news feed in the right hand column. At the top is a list of key words. Click on a keyword to see the latest news on that subject. Thank you to my followers and readers. I am still available through my web site or by e-mail.
