Coast Guard Rescue

Check out the story on these "sailors"...note the logo on the sail! Unbelieveable!!

Two Canadian fishermen were sure they were goners - until their sudden dramatic rescue from their swamped sailboat "Outrageous" in the stormy Atlantic off Fire Island Thursday night.
Spokesmen for the U.S. Coast Guard and the Suffolk County Police Marine Bureau said the two, sailing the newly purchased boat from North Carolina to their homes in New Brunswick, Canada, put in a Mayday call after the boat was swamped and left foundering in 15-foot seas.
The radio signal was weak, but it was picked up by a commercial dredge in the Great South Bay, and someone aboard the dredge relayed it to the Coast Guard station on Fire Island.
A helicopter was dispatched from a Coast Guard base in Massachusetts, and after a search the crew spotted the 30-foot Outrageous 14 miles southwest of Moriches Inlet, 31/2 miles off Davis Park, Fire Island.
"There was a substantial amount of damage above deck, and the sail was nonexistent or ripped off," said Suffolk County Deputy Inspector Harold Jantzen. "The engine wasn't running."
"A Coast Guard rescue swimmer was lowered from the helicopter onto the sailing vessel. ... One of the people onboard sustained an arm injury caused possibly by a heavy roll in the 10-foot seas," the Coast Guard said.
On the boat were Dexter Denton, 67, of New Brunswick, who had been thrown into the sea when the boat blew over, and his uncle Lawson Kinghorne, 73, of St.John, New Brunswick, who suffered a minor arm injury when he was struck by a swinging window, a Coast Guard spokesman said.
The boat was towed to the Coast Guard station on Fire Island, and the sailors were safely ensconced in a local motel yesterday, police said.
"He thought that was the end of him," said Kinghorne's wife, Ethel Kinghorne, 71, who lost her father and brother to the sea, after a telephone conversation with her husband. "She laid down and put the mast in the water. It's enough to shake you up." (story...NYDaily News)

Looks like it might have something to do with an "h" ???? I'm sure it was a good boat for its intended purpose. (So long as the intended purpose is to be rescued by the CG!)

How in the h#$@ do you get "injured by a swinging window" on a 30ft. boat???

Fishermen aren't necessarily sailors, and neither are journalists. "Window" probably means "hatch". If the seas really were 15 feet, they might have coped if they were younger and more familiar with the boat and how to operate it. Hard to say, but it does speak to that "seaworthiness is in part on the crew, not the boat" tune I play.

Where is a hatch that can swing enough to injure someone on a 30ft. hunter?

V- A real boat might have helped with that "seaworthiness" thing too.

Umm... A Hunter 30, offshore, in bad weather and seas, that is new to the crew on it... definitely got what they deserved. They were clearly asking the sea gods to nuke them.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
