i had a case of the horrers about 80 miles offshore doing the midnight to 6 watch on a tuna boat,dark as, sin deep in thought the wheelhouse was powered down ,just a few glows from instraments when all of a sudden deafinning roar overhead and the boat and surrounding 100 yards was lit up brighter than day..i went out onto the stern after a few seconds of shock and disbelif...it was a large cg helocopter looking for a mayday boat.i gave a huge wave and they roared off doing 20 mile square grids.i watched the lights for a long time..it made me feel good...my epirb by my side...someone will come to help you when you need help......on another story that i wont get into here as of 1967 there was still at least one genuine sea monster patroling the waters of the northeast[i have the pictures on my boat so if you see MAGIC out there swing by for a drink and no i wont loan out the pics thats all there is left because the smithsonian wouldnt pony up any money
