    In Dutch Harbor with crab boats often tied 6 boats out, we used to wear float coats to the bar and go with fellow crewmembers to avoid drowning when attempting to get back to the bunk after a night of drinking. I am surprised that the marine safety crowd never moved past abstinence and came up with a no nonsense way of dealing with the avoidance of tragic accidents like this one.

    My condolences to his friends and family.
