Ocean fishing from a boat can have its dangers. We have seen people killed while fishing the beach and we have even rescued people in one instance. Fishing the beach is a lot safer, especally if kids are involved.

I agree that a lot more things can go wrong with the boat.
I hesitate to take anyone along unless conditions are close to ideal. I listen to marine channel 16 and hear plenty of distress calls.

I don't like boats. I had a yak and hit an obstacle that ripped the canvass hull when I was only a kid; I was a passenger for a guy I worked for which was poorly operated and dumped us both in the froth of our wake. In the North Atlantic, an apprentice seaman puking his guts out -- me -- only stopped puking when the Officer of the Deck gave me the helm. If I can't steer the phucking thing, I want no part of a floating device that could turn my children into orphans. BOATS SUCK!!!!!
