Sailboat Rescue from Hurricane Humberto

Here is an excerpt from an article in the San Antonio newspaper, the link at the bottom of the page is to the full article.


San Antonio resident Daniel Hogenauer was caught off guard by Humberto's quick strengthening.

Hogenauer was sailing his newly purchased 33-foot cat ketch in the Intracoastal Waterway from Cortez, Fla., to Corpus Christi when he learned of Humberto and holed up in a marina somewhere near Sabine Pass, his wife Julie Hogenauer said.

He intended to ride the storm out aboard his boat, Pepin, when high winds and the storm surge dumped the boat onto the shore, she said.

As waves crashed over the sides, he used a flashlight to alert a passing tug boat about 4:30 a.m.

Hogenauer abandoned the boat, whose crew radioed the Coast Guard and then took him to a barge, where a Coast Guard helicopter later plucked Hogenauer using a basket, according to Julie Hogenauer and Coast Guard Petty Officer Mario Romero.

She said the Coast Guard crew called him a survivor and said he was lucky because the swampy region was filled with alligators.

"He is fine," she said. "I think he's very lucky and it's quite a story to tell the grandchildren."

That one definitely jumped up the scale quickly. I don't want to sound like the monday morning quarterback, but a constant, vigilant ear to the VHF is sure a good idea - especially during hurricane season. And this story is yet another great example of why NOT to ride out a hurricane on your tub.

I actually know this guy and hope to get the full story. The article that was in the newspaper actually had more information than the online article.

He was monitoring the weather closely but this storm was upgraded very quickly. Meteorologists are still unsure how this storm developed so quickly. Hogenauer was caught out there with no other options on where to run. Sometimes, no matter how much you prepare, you get caught by circumstances.

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.
