Seafaring Gene Found
What did Thor Heyerdahl, Captain Ahab, and Odysseus have in common? They all may have shared a common variant of a gene for "love of the sea".
Researchers at Mystic University in Connecticut have identified a gene associated with "seafaringness", according to an article to be published tomorrow in the journal Genetic Determinism Today. Patterns of inheritance of the long-sought gene offers hope for "sailing widows," and could help explain why the boating life has tended to run in families and why certain towns and geographical regions tend historically to have disproportionate numbers of sea-going citizens.

Boating Rules: Duty to Provide Assistance at Sea
A master or individual in charge of a vessel shall render assistance to any individual found at sea in danger of being lost, so far as the master or individual in charge can do so without serious danger to the master's or individual's vessel or individuals on board.
The "Law of the Sea" demands that you MUST render assistance to a person or boat in distress. ("Shall" in the rules = must) You can actually be fined for not doing so ! And yes, "at sea" means "upon the high seas and in all waters connected therewith navigable by seagoing vessels" aka the Sound.
