Taking advantage of commercial airline when in Emergency?
I am sure commercial airline does not equipped with VHF or monitoring on Channel 16. I have a feeling that there are more planes above the Ocean than ships, Just wonder for the little guys on the sailboat can take the advantage of them flying above of us to relay weather and emergency message.
Self reliance is a must, but the ocean doesn't have to be so lonely either.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
