A slice of South Florida's boating culture

With the recent disappearance of two Jupiter boys who went fishing on their own in a 19-foot boat, a lot of people have been surprised that kids in South Florida navigate boats alone, unsupervised.  I wrote a story explaining this aspect of South Florida boating culture where kids who are raised on the water are trusted by their parents to motor boats solo.
