There are other possibilities, ZOMBIE ATTACK, parasite invaded her brain and
took control, alien abduction, she fell over board while peeing. Any number of
events could account for her disappearance.

This is in bad taste.

Which scenario is in bad taste? I didn't say she was a candidate for a Darwin award which I see you didn't comment on that, or accuse her of fraud or stupidity, or bad judgement. Granted the alien and zombie scenario is far fetched and even next to impossible but peeing over board then having your boat get hit by a rouge wave is very possible. We don't know what happened and yes it is very sad that this lady has possibly lost her life.

Re: Woman Missing – A warning to Newbies.

If I was in that woman's place and my newly remarried spouse says, "Okay honey. If you want to take the boat back all alone, I'll let you. In the meantime, I'll take the car back and wait for you there. Be sure to call when you get in! Bye!"

The first thing I'd do is divorce the guy... again!

I can't imagine letting anyone you love and care about head out alone, at night, in rough weather, on a new boat neither of you know anything about to sail a treacherous coast.

And to make that trip alone, you would either have to be drunk and so furious at your spouse you can't see straight or mentally unstable and married to someone who doesn't want you around anymore. Two people let this happen, the wife and the husband. They can't both be out of their minds. One of them had to know what she was getting into.

Re: Woman Missing – A warning to Newbies.

The husband said that his wife was an experienced sailor and she had an expert to give her a refreshing course before leaving the dock . He dismissed that she is dead.

More from here:


Nevertheless, he has good taste, nice Porsche.

Re: Woman Missing – A warning to Newbies.

I thought I read the husband was 61?

And shouldn't there have been an EPIRB on board?

Whoa! That's a bit heavy. There is a world of difference between counseling against doing something and trying to stop someone. I have an ambition to do something that the admiral thinks is crazy and dangerous but she would never dream of trying to stop me, anymore than I would try to actually prevent her from doing something, no matter what my opinion. Trying to stop someone only results in conflict and resentment.

Having said that, no one here knows what took place between them - but the conjecture is rife.

Re: Woman Missing – A warning to Newbies.

For the records, my wife never stops me. In fact I have hall passes and I can do anything I want.
