Way to go GeorgeB. The reason they did not make a call is because the boat was actually rolled over at the bottom of a swell while going 18 kts out of control thus the crew panic. The cabin was totally trashed all electronics OOC.

They eventually were able to restablish coms using the handheld sat phone. I agree a call to the CG via sat phone would have been a better choice but I wasn't there.
They eventually were routed back across the Gulf Stream and pulled into a Marina in Moorehead City, NC.
