yo nino G.M.G BOSS : I think he watched the perfect storm movie too many times πŸ˜‚

Jaclyn : let us know if he survives

Tomma kaze : Please interview him, or what's left of him after the storm!

Claire Conover : RIP guy on the boat. It’s a boat.... he should have road it up north (away from the storm).

Pink Panther : He like Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump.

sandra booker : For some reason I believe he will survive in that boat, even if he in up on the other side of the country!. I also believe for some strange reason the boat will be safer than a house or building!

The Stalinios : He's pretty good at floating πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Ethereal Van : Material possessions are not worth your damn life.

Rebel Channel Without a Cause : There's always one idiot. But he has a boat! He could have boated out farther north or south to avoid the storm and slept at another dock.

DisposableEgo : Lol! He's gonna swim to shore...unfnreal

VeRaFeeD31 : When she says she’s home alone

ε‚­ε…΅Cloud : It's crazy but I wish him the best of luck.

superplan89 : I wanna know what happens to him! Post hurricane

William Blake : This anchorman claims that he can see the birds "struggling" to fly in the video's background. What a sack of crap. They look like they're having a blast or else they'd perch.

Richard Ralph Roehl : Frankly... I wouldn't mind risking the experience of being on that guy's boat. It would be a very interesting experience. I suspect the tanks on his yacht are filled with diesel... and the engines are primed.

Anarchy is order : This guy on the boat must have some good dope

Commonsense Aint Common : As a person that can't even swim.... I would be Terrified! 😐

Mish-elle Incognito : He's done this before.... So had Steve Irwin and we all know how that turned out. R.I.P. "Cappy"....

wise ass : Sounds like fun.

prophet mathis : Wow there's always one😲🀀😱.⚰

Where's The Wall? : RIP in advance to one man on boat

Hugh McCurdy : Riding out Hurricane Florence in a boat makes great sense, as long as the boat is off the shore of Maine...

Applepie6 : This planet has so many stupid's amazing

Michael Longoria : That man is dead, god bless his soulπŸ˜₯

TheRealShroom : He owe's a ton in child support, so he can't step foot on land. A hurricane is less risky, and wayyyy less expensive. ;)

Matthew O'Neil : I like that dude I’m down with it πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸŒŠπŸ’¨

No Videos : Rip to my guy on the boat Rest In Peace πŸ™πŸ½

LB CA : Idiot, its a BOAT, sail away!

Rona Love : Besides a dumb bunny... He's a dead azza. Alright captain going down with the ship is admirable.😲

Hannibal : Lil yachty would be proud

Melissa Vtown : Whatever floats his boat lol stupid choice but pray for him.

willam Estrada : Not only will he endanger his life for material things but also coast guards that come to his aid.

sondrag2 : that "boat" is about $350,000 + you think he might have put a autopilot and kept it pointed into the wave,so it wont get flipped ,, emergency dingy...and i bet wetsuit,and scuba tank too. i hope he earth..deep

THAT RANDOM CHANNEL : Why this guy had to be a redneck.

Tamara Weber : Where is he today? Did he survive? πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Kim Davies : He must have nothing to live for.

Max Rank : Idiots. Mother Nature cannot be ridden.

thedirtydizzler : He literally JUST said he has experience....

mieklYouhanes : Hes experience in a category 3 hurricane.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ lord. I be suprised if hes still alive. Lol. Can we get an update.

minhhai kim : Didn’t they say they will arrest anyone that go on the water ?

Hayden Philbert : Am an old sea man myself and I can tell you that storms are far more stronger on the water than on land so I wish him well.

ElaineSimplyEL : I was in hurricane Gilbert and after the storm had passed, there were boats crashed into the high rise hotels a few stories up. Mother Nature is more powerful that a boat!

Alicia Barnes : Hope he’s ok πŸ’–

Kevin Garcia : Not very smart

Ruined_ Zl1 : All my prayers Go to everybody out there riding out the storm...and may God be with them no matter what happens

Chef Ms Dee : SHID,,,HE TRIPN!!!!! GOOD LUCK!!!

Anunnaki Menagerie : Say "tour boat" ten times fast

Watch Destroyer : 52 foot boat vs hurricane.....

Sean : What do they think I happens in all the marinas along the entire u.s. Coastline and all the islands in the Caribbean and then the Pacific? The boats don't get destroyed we're always manned by people to stay with them the boats to get shoved into each other and crashed in to the shore are the ones that people left behind.
