Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

That's very confusing: they were experienced deliver skippers and went out of port with a not good forecast with half a tank of fuel, enough to reach destination if the boat could make 6K??????

And then it seems they started to run out of fuel because they could not make that speed motoring???? What about sailing? They don't talk about huge winds 40mph???? The boat is bouncing around because it is not stabilized and tied to a side by small storm sails. Very confusing all that.
