    Sincere condolences to this lady's husband, family and friends. I hope the sheer sides, complete lack of lighting and ridiculous, key padded doors on the floating pontoon to this lady's boat were not a contributing factor or worse, cause, of this wonderful lady's terrible demise in Tingdene's Racecourse Marina. RIP
