Looks like a Hunter. Wonder what the story is with this one? UM, someone wanted to try their heavy weather skills?

Hard to believe that they waited so long before pushing north, trying to outrun the storm--They left their mooring in Portsmouth on Friday?

Really, they wanted to outrun the storm. No wonder they didn't want to be identified.

Here's a link to a news story about the Hunter and its owner's many troubles.

There is a good thread on SailboatOwner's as well.

What is the best boat for running ashore in a hurricane?

A surfboat or a Coast Guard 50 footer like they use at Cape Disappointment.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
