Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

If the pranksters (I feel that's an understatement as it's much more than a 'prank') were on a passing ship with AIS, there's a good chance that the ship can be identified. If they had only made one call, maybe not. But they at least made two, about 50 minutes apart. A rough calculation of average distance travelled and the passing time between two calls should narrow down the possibilities, I would think. Or hope.
