The book by a best selling writer in this area will be released next spring, I will inform the forum as soon as I am allowed, he researched the entire event extensively and the book is a gripper.

Re: Video of extraordinary USCG rescue at sea

Thank you seansea. A riveting tale. I think I have a good idea now of what it is to step up into the life raft.

It is thanks to the extraordinary valor and courage of the US Coast Guard crew that engaged under conditions beyond anything they had seen in the past. Beyond the awards received from both the US and Canadian Governments a book will be published and released next spring titled "A Storm Too Soon" by a bestselling author.

It is five going on six years since a series of miracles allowed us to survive unpredicted Sub-Tropical Storm Andrea, on January 15 A Storm Too Soon by best selling author Michael Tougias will be released by Simon and Schuster. It is as gripping as the storm, I will be commenting further but here is the link :
