I'm always suspicious when people wave at me. More so if I think they know me....
"Arms, for the Waving of - frantic"
Boat 1: Everyone waving - 6 PAX OB
Kayaks 1 & 2: Arm waving - supplemented by paddle raised.
Boat 2: Frantic arm waving - supplemented by shirt in hand.
Kayak 3: He sank, the splashing gave him away...
Now that I think of it, there was another boat (#3) that was aground on a reef. They just sat there and refused to talk to us. Dad hadn't had therapy for "aground", apparently. RNLI had been summoned so we p1ssed offski.
