BRIEF: Stranded boaters rescued off Anclote Key [Orlando Sentinel :: ]

(Orlando Sentinel (FL) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Aug. 30--Two stranded boaters were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard early Saturday off the coast of Anclote Key.

Bogdan Makowski, 69, and Elizabeth Makowski, 61, of Hudson, were reported missing around 10 a.m. Friday. A friend had not spoken to them since Aug. 24 and expected them to return on Aug. 26, the coast guard said.

The boaters were rescued around 2 a.m. on their stranded 27-foot sailboat. They were provided with food and water and were listed in stable condition.

"The Coast Guard reminds boaters to carry multiple forms of emergency signaling devices including an emergency position indicating radio beacon," the coast guard said.



Having the right emergency equipment can save lives, the coast guard said.
