    Thanks for sharing. Sucks to hear. This was about 40 miles north of where I am on Nantucket, not sure what the hell they were doing in the ocean in a canoe this time of year. Whale watching would be the obvious answer, I know. Anyway, it is still pretty darn cold here, especially the water temps.

    a 12 ft. canoe in the ocean?? not meaning to disrespect those who have passed away....but for cripes sakes!......common! These guys would infest Northern Maine (every summer) with their idiocracy on many occasions.....like parking in the middle of a 55mph. road to take pictures of moose, or die/get lost up on Mt. Katahdin. We call em flatlandahs or ma s s holes. I grew up witnessing their capacity to harm themselves when they came up in the big country to attempt to become "one" with motha nature.

    about ten years ago i was out with a friend in my 18' stripper, paddling near skagway. we could here humpbacks sounding, and set a course around them. by the time we got a visual it was apparent we were on a v course into them. closing to 100 yards we turned 180 and paddled hard, but guess what? they came over to see us. one breached repeated 30 yards from us, and we surfed its waves, incredibly exciting, incredibly scary, and in this case not avoidable.

    Default Reminds me-

    This story reminds me of the "Orca lands on kayaker" deal on YouTube. But when I looked for that one, I found an even more interesting one debunking it. Check it out!

    Someone died here on Nantucket this morning. The guys were fishing (clamming) and fell off the boat into 55 deg water. Dead. The guy that died actually dove in to help the other guy that had fallen. Sucks for sure. Story below...
