Re: We should all help these poor ladies 🙄
I love the statement about only two wooden or glass sailing vessels transiting the Dragon’s Triangle area over the last 20 years. How can she possibly know that? Do yachts sailing from the SoPac islands to Japan specifically avoid this area, because...?
I have personally had sharks, big sharks, follow the boat for a day or two several times, but never did I feel threatened, unless I were to do something as stupid as joining them in the water. How would laying flat in the cockpit dissuade creatures w/o the mental faculties of determining that there was food (humans, which are not common food for deep sea sharks) aboard the thing (boat) floating in the water. More than likely, if these two women were not throwing garbage in quantity overboard, these creatures, as do many species of pelagic fish deep sea, were only seeking shade below their boat.
These two obviously set out to perpetrate a hoax and got caught. Lacking any class at all they continue to blame anyone they can think of for that failure, instead of admitting their duplicity and fading swiftly into history with others who have survived their own foolish attempts at seeking fame and fortune by fabricating a survival tale at sea.
I'd chip in to a go fund me account that assured the world that these two would never set foot on a boat, ever again!
