    Storm must have caught them by surprise.

    To bad is right.

    I remember a few years ago when a duck boat started to sink, the passengers started to sing the song from the Titanic ..lol

    Why weren't they wearing life vests?
    The Captain should have handed them out when he saw the approaching storm.

    I agree.

    They all should have been wearing them.

    Whenever I've been in a boat that the first thing the person running the boat does is make sure everyone in the boat has on a life preserver.

    Adults dont have to wear them but you are required to have one for everyone onboard. And they're required to be within easy reach and access.
    I would also think it would be required that the Captain point out the location of the life vest before entering the water.

    Radar indicated a huge storm approaching an hour before launching. Winds were drastically picking up at launch time, as some people exchanged their tickets to get their money back.
    The boats should have been grounded until the storm passed.
