Re: Beating Bad

Huh. I'd love to hear more of this story.

John Phillip Stirling, 65, displayed signs of an overdose when U.S. Coast Guard personnel boarded his boat about 415 kilometres off Newport, Ore.
So we have a single handed sailor overdosing well offshore.

I wonder where he was coming from and going to. Was he experienced enough to be doing that trip, if he hadn't sampled a bit too much of his own product?

And why did the Coast Guard board in the first place.
