Please Tim, do not thank me. Let us not misunderstand each other. I totally disagree with you and all you have posted thus far.
US Government assets (if they exist in the Tasman Sea) should not be subverted for a private search.
Texas Equusearch is a couple guys with horses (in Texas) and a PR
team....what's up with the sudden concern about Texan's abroad and alost in boats?
Would missing Oakies or Arkansans or Haitians or Libiyans merit changing the orbits of low level US satellites?
Would you Texans demand swerving a satellite for a lost mariner in the Bronx? Off Massachusetts? Swivel a bit to cover Nova Scotia?
I don't think so.
Tim - in you I do not sense a sailor's soul. Sailors let the dead be dead, counsel families to be at peace.
Some - not the sailors - will never let souls rest as long as there is a cent to be made from the memory or the bones ( or all the better - lack of bones!). Where once were persons today lies profit.
Do not thank me, count me among the disgusted with your efforts.
(and there I was trying to be so polite...)
