Re: Sailors rescued 900 miles off shore..

well.. regarding the fastnet gale... if they had stayed with the boats.. how beaten up or even dead, would the sailors had been if they had been below decks during that aweful event?

I am not saying you are wrong.. you're not.. but I can think that pitchpoling below decks is a good way to break a lot of bones
