Even better, sounds like they found the mythical $6,500 Globe Girdler...

I'm guessing the boat may have been maybe 70's vintage, based solely on the type of end fitting on the boom visible in one of the pics...

Everything was fine, until the deck started separating from the hull, according to Gastonguay, who "had little experience handling a sailboat..."

Typical mainstream media, the interviewer mispronounces "Kiribati", and they threw in a pic of Bora Bora, instead... :-)

I just want to know what kind of boat it was and what kind of damage they sustained. They were afraid to put up their genoa because they thought they would lose the mast? Did a stay snap? What went on?

If the thread degenerates into an anti religious thread it will end up in Off Topic. It would be preferable if that were not to happen.

Re: This has everything;Sailing,God, Goverment & Escape

On a bit of reflection, when the going was rough, they held it together really well. I have seen "adults" wet themselves in situations much less difficult than this. The fact that they made it so far is "somewhat" a testimony to their convictions and there ability to carry on in the face of adversity.

Now I am really curious to know the type of SV they where on, how much actual prior sailing experience they had. I betcha writing a book is gonna be in their future. Everybody has got to make a living, dontcha know!

Re: This has everything;Sailing,God, Goverment & Escape

You know the story of the family sitting on their roof during the flood? A rescue boat comes to take them to safety, but they refuse to board it, saying "God will save us from the rising waters". The water continues to rise and they drown. When they see God in heaven, they ask him why he didn't save them. He says, "I sent you a rescue boat".

Why even take a boat, just do us all a favor and jump in the water. If you pray hard enough, God will take care of you. If you die, well then, you just didn't have enough faith.
