Sickening.
Just stupidity.
Yes. When I heard the bit about the 10 kt current I couldn't take any more and turned it off. Two prime candidates for the 2017 Darwin award saved by fool's luck.

Re: 5000 Miles off course

I hope some journalist talk to some of the sailors who knew them in Hawaii to get a little more insight to how they started to prepare for this "journey".

Re: 5000 Miles off course


In the first minute of this interview they talk about being towed for 24 hours. What was that all about, when were they supposedly towed?

Re: 5000 Miles off course

I cant find the reference now, but I thought I read somewhere that a concerned Taiwanese fishing vessel took them under their wing and in tow until the US navy could reach them.

Yes.. that was what was reported..

Just a flat-out odd interview, bizarre statements, I just dunno what to make of it all. Certainly not any kind of sense...

Re: 5000 Miles off course

Wouldn't a force 11 storm show up on Honolulu weather for that same date range? https://www.timeanddate.com/weather/...th=5&year=2017

It shows the wind in Honolulu to be 11 knots that night.

Interesting, do any of the weather routers keep historical data, storm could have just skirted by the island, but it does bring into question their tale.
