Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

If it was a hoax you kinda wonder how the call was made. CG has pretty good VHF radio direction finding equipment so you would think call did come from 65 miles out. And conditions were gale force, so who ever made the call must be an experienced seaman. Why would someone mess around making hoax calls in those conditions.

In any case, hope it was a hoax and no lives lost.
