Re: "Dove" crew missing

This is too weird.... first a false alarm and then several weeks later the real deal and the crew is picked up by a freighter? Can't make this sh*t up!

Maybe the person who rang 911 a few weeks ago wasn't that stupid.

Re: "Dove" crew missing

Free sailboat, slightly used, engine ran great when we shut her down. Needs mast and rigging (and a tow)....

Re: "Dove" crew missing

I feel like there might be some operator error involved here.

"Feel like"... The great legal level of proof required to hang a man.

What a difference a thread makes
Context matters here. Mt Desert Island is at 44N & we are in December.

Look at Vagabonde's track - they stayed well South until they got close to their destination & then went North. If there was no weather window, the Vagabonde people would have waited for one before going North.

The Vagabonde people are seasoned sailors who know what they are doing. Not sure about the skipper of the Dove.

My bad, looks like this was off Norfolk. Would be interested in the co-ordinates though.
