Hurricane-force NORTHERLY winds in the Gulf Stream? I can't begin to imagine the horrible seas that would kick up.

Those nine sailors are very lucky people, indeed, and -- once again -- the USCG has shown it's ability to save lives in absolutely atrocious conditions.

But Cam and Dog are right: what the hell were those sailors thinking?
