In an amazing story of survival (and overall just being a Boss) yesterday Marco Vestich and Sharreiff vincent beat the odds and swam ashore after their boat capsized and sank 5 miles offshore the Florida Keys. It is amazing these guys are alive and their story is one that will hopefully motivate all of us to have the same drive if we are put through the same in our lives.
These guys lost all their dive gear, boat, etc and I’d like you to donate anything you can to help them out.
So far Riffe has donated two new guns to replace what they lost and they could use fins, mask, snorkel, weighbelts, gloves, booties, wetsuits, etc. If you want to help, email email@example.com and send gear to

Thank you lord! And thank you everybody tht put me and Sharrieff Vincent in your prayers. And willing to come out and try to find us. It started out as a great day me and sharrieff were shooting fish at the Reef I shot a nice 5 lb. mangrove . Anyways we started heading in and a wave came I’ve the back of the boat next thing we know another wave flips the boat over and we’re still 5 miles out. As soon as it happened I was scared really scared and sharrieff was like we can do this man. So we stuck togeather current was rippin waves were going over our heads but we just kept on swimming and swimming we kept on talking each other through it telling eachother we were gonna be okay we honestly we didn’t think we were gonna make it but we both said to eachother if we die were gonna die trying and fighting for our lives. I kept on telling sharrieff to fight through the pain and that we were gonna be okay we swam side by side the whole way We prayed to god so much through it all when the helicopter and rescue boats went right past us we thought we were done for we held on to crab trap buoys to gain energy we could barley stand when we finally got to shore I just thank god for my life and thank my best friend Sharrieff Vincent for pushing himself past the limit. Thanks you everybody this experience makes me want to change my self.. Coast guard told us we shouldn’t of lived but we beat the odds. I love you big brother — with Sharrieff Vincent.
