Yeah but they are all in the same boat, the rescue responsibility is on their guide and boat crew. If I can help I certainly will to a point. My young kids often boat with me, I will not put them in danger for you or anyone else.
If I can throw a line or pickup a swimer I will without a doubt. I will do what I can up to the point of putting my boat crew at deadly risk. Helmet or not. Peeps uninformed decisions is not worth putting my life or the lives of the crew in my boat.
I am not a first responder and have no desire, if you do then thank you.
