How can you be lost at SEA????
No matter what direction you go, you will run into land sooner or later.
Off the East Coast of N America? Follow the sun, you will arrive on the coast very soon unless you are in the East Atlantic.
Gesh!! the Sun will indicate the direction North, South, East and West. So will the stars and moon.
Get a Sun Crystal that the Vikings used and you will always know where the sun is on an overcasted day...
Study the birds and follow them back to land.
Note the basic wave & wind patterns and those are an indicater.
Lost?? Because you are NOT using the Common Sense You should have developed as a child.
