Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

Well she's got some of the facts WRONG - way wrong, typical media screw up. I guess the writer thinks there can be only "one" vessel named "Running Free".

>Until they lost their engine during rough weather associated with tropical storm Andrea June 7, the owners of Running Free had enjoyed more than four years of cruising the U.S. and nearby islands from Newfoundland to the Bahamas, as chronicled on the website runningfree.us.<<

My friends that own "Running Free" on the website, they and their boat are doing fine back home in Minnesota! I guess the writer isn't much of a sailor and can't tell the difference between a ketch and wishboned rigged free standing rig.
