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.

I don't know, but "amsacrim exams" sound painful.

the epirb was not activated, the air sea watch planes noticed it drifting eratically and notifyed the coast guard, the engine was running in neutral, the rib was secured, the life raft was still in place, pencils were still in place on cockpit bench, reports fron airlie beach confirm the fenders were stowed on departure, the sea state was on the tail end of the storms further south, the jib is torn from luffing, the gps download shows the vessel was under control for 1 1/2 days and then begins to drift with the currents, 2 of the men on board were very experienced sailors and swimmers and the other guy was an experienced sailor and an ordinary swimmer. the conclusion reached by the police was that one fell overboard and the other 2 followed in a comedy of errors. the investigation is still open. no one in the area or from the familys accepts the explanation. there are drug and people smugglers operating along the coastline. there was no damage or mechanical or electrical failures with the boat,

aliens came and took them on their space ship. left the boat there 'cos they'll return 10-20 years later (after some experimenting).

i am pleased Trantor stopped before he got to the bit about inserting probes into the abductees, ha ha. the whole episode is worrying from not only the disappearence side but also that coast watch aircraft took 2 days to notice a vessel was operating errattically and then only after a querie from a trawler who was working the area.
