Perfect Storm...History channel Question

Hi,
Recently I watched an actual documentary on the legendary "Perfect Storm" .My question revolves around the footage of a small liveaboard sailboat that was caught in this
storm.The individual did not want to leave his boat and insisted he and the boat would survive this ordeal,(He had years of experience at sea),the US Coast Guard thought otherwise and declared his voyage unsafe and plucked him off his boat.After the storm passed the man spent alot of money to locate his boat and found it intact washed upon a shore.
Did anyone happen to see this show and notice what kind of sailboat it was.(They showed a brief clip of his boat washed up on the seashore).I figure this was a fine boat to survive this.

Thanks,
Jerry O

Ahoy assult, went to the site and it was a great read. Trouble with laws and licenses in respect to offshore sailing aside, I never would have abondoned ship. I''ve often wondered how the manifestly unsafe voyage provision applies to any competant seaman or sailing vessel. Coast Guard would have to pry me dead fingers from the tiller more likley. What about small craft advisories and the like? Big Red Pirate of Pine Island.

Yah Red, I agree.If nothing else, a little learn''n about hypothermia would suggest that you stay aboard. I''ve noticed about three stages of fear (maybe there''s more) that tingle of nerves/stomach, the white knuckles, and the "oh ****" its goin'' down. Do they talk about these issues in the book or video?

Ahoy BR56,

If you like a good internet read, try the following story of a gentlemen who just completed the restoration of a John Hanna Albatross...
