Re: Another missing sailor,

Medical problems in past year Still no answers to
My problem. Getting on boat, found myself on floor. Fell through and surprised as hell. Fell and no idea why. I might have suffered a stroke while getting in cockpit then finding myself down below. No sailing for me single handed until i have answers.

Re: Another missing sailor,

I sold my Hunter 27 in 1983 to a guy who was just retiring at age 67, that also had heart problems. He single handed it for 8 years from NJ to Florida and back at least 3 times. Everyone told him he was crazy, but he said if he died sailing he'd be happy with it. He was finally getting very weak and decided to sell the boat, and agreed to deliver it to a buyer in Norh Carolina. They found him on lying a beach in South Carolina next to the boat.

My dad has been in a hospital and two rehab/nursing homes after minor fall. MUCH better to leave this world by sailboat!
