Irresponsible dive boat skippers should be jailed...

Amazing how skippers can just leave a site where they have groups of divers diving.It is so easy to loose sight of a buoyline if you are not keeping track of it all the time.A few years ago in Mozambique at Ponta Du Ouro the same thing happened to divers doing a 40 meter dive at Pinnacles which is about a 45 minutes boatride out to sea.When the group surfaced after their dive the skipper had left.Apparently he fell asleep on the boat after a late night out and returned to Ponta Du Ouro.The group swam for 8 hours before a fishing boat spotted and rescued them.These types of unresponsible skippers should be jailed for such actions.
