I feel bad thinking it but....

Makes me feel much better about my last "rough weather" experience which was my own fault.

6' seas and 40mph winds

Ok someone help me out here , All my research tells me this boat and most boats 30+' in general can handle this 6' seas and 40mph winds ... Granted not fun and risky But possible .

So whats UP ? Thay loose the eng ?
Find out too late thay love life too much to run the risk ( remember thay chose this way of life ) .... and if thay do WHY would thay (anyone) expect help from USCG ( or anyone) if knowing that help could lead to anothers death.

Doesn't the Chesapeake have a zillion nooks & crannies, rivers etc. to hide in from big weather? Sure looks like it on a map.

Yes


Many things don't make sense here. What I am really not understanding is the report says they left Friday for Annapolis? And why Annapolis? Weird

And if they left Portsmith for Annapolis on Friday, how do they end up on a beach they's have to turn south/east to get to when Annapolis is clearly north? Friday was perfectly calm. No reason they couldn't have made it pretty far north if they were trying to put distance between themselves and Irene.

Still this isn't the stupidest thing I've seen today.

Earlier I saw a couple of drunks from the hotel at HH swiming out past the breakwater as the first bands or Irene hit. If that had gone bad there wouldn't have been any rescue.

Yes, they did lose the engine.

That picture of the boat on the beach made the front page of the St. Petersburg Times Sunday morning.

Years ago when I was doing deliveries, there were two sailboats I delivered one after the other. Both had the same engine. I want to say Yanmar, but it was long ago, 17 years, and I just can't remember for sure.

It was late in the year and on both deliveries we got into rough weather and both engines stopped running. The second delivery was a 40' Hunter. Something about how the boats bounced in the large swells just screwed up the engine.

these people were only 2-3miles from a safe harbor at little creek, hard to understand, but i was not on board so I cannot judge. i know of at least one that rode out the storm in Willoughby Bay.... at least everyone got off ok, valuable lessoned learned I am sure.

Not to armchair quarterback but:

1. Why would you leave a safe port 24 hrs prior to a hurricane?
2. Why would you head north where the storm is also expected to hit?
3. When engine went out why anchor with options?
a. Sail to little creek with many marinas 3miles away
b. Radio for help or tow

There is just way too much that does not make sense about this.
