Re: Help locating a friend?

Manly Harbor is the last reported position on Marine Traffic, on July 9.

When did he actually depart and what was his destination on that first leg? It's certainly possible his AIS is off or inoperative, let alone out of reach of any shore based repeater, which Marine Traffic relies upon. They have a new subscription satellite system for mid ocean, but I believe the vessel must be capable of transmitting to the satellite and I'm not sure most recreational models are.

I hope your friend is okay. Most often they turn out to be. Did he have an EPIRB? I too would be concerned about a voyage to HI during hurricane season and one just passed through a couple of weeks ago, with another on the way now. The Pacific has been very active, they are up to O already.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
