If nothing else, it would have been helpful for rescuers to have a big white boat somewhere near the ejectees.
If a guy doesn't want to wear a lanyard and a jacket, then I have no sympathy for them when they die- they were asking... begging for it. What I have a problem with is after you get tossed, where does your unguided missile continue on to? Who else do you take with you?
If you don't care about you, why should I? But, if you're so self-centered and ignorant that you can't be troubled to take a minor, non-intrusive step to prevent injury or death to someone else, then you have no business owning a boat.
