Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

I'd be curious to see what references these guys provide, if they advertise their services online or somewhere else. Seems they haven't had much experience with this kind of delivery. Had they even done an offshore delivery before? It seems pretty obvious that they've never sailed and only done power boats, where they may have had the benefit of greater power (and a hull designed to be more stable under power) to muscle their boat through difficult conditions.
