Mary Celeste ...was a British merchant brigantine. The ship is famous for having been discovered on 5 December 1872 in the Atlantic Ocean, unmanned and apparently abandoned (the one lifeboat was missing, along with its crew of eight and two passengers), although the weather was fine and her crew were experienced and capable seamen.

Ha, of course I just saw this post, after I posted a link to the same story as a new thread....I should have looked harder I guess. Regardless, he was truly a maniac.

Okay - I really like this Bulgarian dude:

Man Rescued Trying To Sail To US In 300 Dinghy

The man was not wearing a life jacket, his boat had no lights and his only navigational aid was a street map of Southampton.
You go boy!

Always a good idea to keep the loved ones in the loop. A $250K oopsie? These guys were in my backyard.

Re: Beyond the "Edge"

This was right in my sailing backyard:

A shredded boat with a pfd attached and dragging behind it. Not an encouraging sight 100 miles off-shore.

Turns out the couple had been rescued a few weeks previously. The S/V Escape Pod is probably still bobbing around out there.
