The sun is setting and your day on the water is coming to an end. You head back to the launch but on the way you come across a boater who is dead in the water. Soon it will be dark and you aren't just going to leave them there stranded to hopefully contact a friend of tow service. The conditions aren't bad, in fact they are fairly calm so you decide to head over. After assessing the situation you decide that helping the other boater is not going to put you or your crew in any danger. Now that you plan on helping the fellow boater out, here are some things to think about while doing your duty as good samaritan.
