Re: Adrift sv Dagny, West End, Grand Bahama

My apologies. I use TapaTalk and just look at New Posts and don't look at what sub forum a post is in.

If I were in the area I would help look for his boat but since I am not I hope others are able to find her and reunite him with her.

Re: Adrift sv Dagny, West End, Grand Bahama

Seems like his main issue was not properly anticipating his cross track. He started crossing too far north at Port St. Lucie. For a first trip, it probably would have been better to sail south and crossed near Miami. That way, he could go straight across and let the current carry him north, thus spending minimal time in the stream. Plus, he'd have some time to get used to the motion before the rough seas and hopefully avoid seasickness.

Other than that, he didn't seem to do anything egregious.

Re: Adrift sv Dagny, West End, Grand Bahama

No new sightings and we will probably not get another drift analysis from Chris Parker due to the time factor. Waves are pushing her towards shore while currents are pushing her out. Then there is the wind. Dagny is pretty low to the water and though her keel is long, it is fairly shallow. Plus she is dragging an anchor along with her. I think the curve of the coast will be in our favor and she will anchor herself off the Carolinas..?

Please keep an eye out. If you have a friend who is in the vicinity, or have a friend who may have a friend that is in the vicinity, please let them know about Dagny. It is now a waiting game for her to be spotted. The more people know about dagny the more likely she will be spotted and recognized as a vessel adrift.

No lights on, so she is a hazard to navigation.

Another picture, I thought I'd already posted this. The orange round fender was not on deck when the boat went adrift. There were two small blue fenders. The boat is locked up tight, and solar panels should keep the batteries charged.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to read and pass along this notice.

There have been some objections to the perceived pounding on this guy while he's down on his luck. Please remember that personal attacks are still not welcome on this forum whether the person is a member or not. Civilly discussing his decisions, on the other hand, is a learning opportunity for all of us.

What does that link have to do with Dagny being adrift? Either you linked the wrong article, or are confusing the situations?

I can only assume you are deliberately misrepresenting the situation as you are active on another forum where Gil has stated categorically any monetary help would be a loan, even when told to not pay back. He has also stated very clearly what transpired leading up to the loss of Dagny. This is a real sailor, in real trouble.

I understood this to be sub forum to be used as a form of notice to Mariners type of thing.

I see you are in the Carolinas, if you'd like to help, money is not the issue, spotting her is. So please put the word out if you know any sailors transiting this area. If you have a boat and are in a marina, you could also let your harbor master know, I could email you a flyer.

Thanks
Erika
