Re: Pride of Baltimore

Thanks for the link Roger. Like many, I remember where I was when the PoB went down...in my case, at sea, a couple of hundred miles away, in a Holman & Pye Oyster 48. We didn't think the weather was bad and we were wondering about the USCG request on the radio to "be on the lookout for victims of the sinking". A long discussion ensued about what we would do if we found a 'victim' - the difficulties of dealing with death at sea versus death on land. Anyway, the discussion on the linked thread is a great read!
