Cutting through the BS, you stated a crew of 3 people. As captain of the vessel your responsibility is the safety of the crew, period. Call a MAYDAY and set the EPIRB as soon as the situation unfolds.
Once the crew safety has been addressed you are free to play with the whales and monkeys all you wish.

|sailingdog||Setting off the EPIRB when stepping up in to the liferaft is an excellent idea. If you have a Sat phone, calling the USCG might be a really good idea. BTW, don't piss off the whales... they're smarter than you and can be very, very mean...|

You didn't mention what kind of propulsion your life raft has. What makes you think the raft will head for a near shore. If it decides to go for a distant shore you better have one of those 100 gallon rafts plus food.
Drowning is only one way to die.

I just want to know what it was you did to piss off the whales....
(Activate the emergency beacon as SOON as you make the decision to bail out)
Avoid contact with Moby and his crew at all costs....

|bubb2||That is what i meant earlier about the pan-pan being answered. 100 miles off shore no guarantee or was another vessel that answered. Lots of people have been picked up and not had the coast guard involved.|
