  • A man who was all alone when he fell off of his kayak without a life jacket on south of Boston Harbor was fortunate to be near a moored vessel he could climb onto. The Coast Guard was alerted by the man’s friend that he was missing when he did not return from a late night solo kayaking trip. Two hours into the search, Guardians heard him calling from the moored vessel. It is suggested that if you go on a late night kayaking trip that you; do not go alone, wear a life jacket and suitable clothing for the water temperature, bring appropriate safety/survival gear, and carrying a VHF marine radio for communication.
