Re: A phone call you don't want to receive
Recently we we were in Panama...someone else gave some friends of ours a fright.
There was another American boat with the same name as ours (Evenstar) in Panama headed to Ecuador. Our next stop was to be the Galapagos, also part of Ecuador though he was headed for the mainland...how many American Evenstars are there headed for parts of Ecuador, right?
En route, he started taking on water and the boat sank, the skipper and his crew were picked up by a passing merchant vessel.
The first I heard of it was an e-mail from a friend asking if we were all OK. They had heard about the distress situation via one of the SSB nets and wanted to make sure it wasn't us.
