re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea
According to a report on CruisersForum, Australian SAR has reported contact with the boat, reportedly in the vicinity of Lord Howe (Sp?) Island, with no difficulty. While it may be nice to have frequent position up-dates via SPOT or other means, their sudden absence--even if caused by over-sight, failed batteries, or whatever--can heighten anxiety for friends and family of a cruiser unduly, doing more harm than good, eh?
Hopefully, that is the case...
Wouldn't be the first time, and it most certainly won't be the last...
Don't read this unless you have time . .
