Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast
Reasons why this may be a hoax:
1.- 65 miles offshore in a small boat with 2 little kids in rough conditions in the middle of winter with no EPIRB and no PFDs? Who does that?
2.- "Electronics" conveniently failing. No further response necessary on the part of the hoaxer.
3.- Nobody has reported a boat and crew overdue.
4.- The CG does not know the boat's departure point or destination.
BTW, MarkofSeaLife- for all we know the Coasties suspect this is a hoax as well. That doesn't mean they aren't going to make every effort. They are, of course. That's what they are there for.
