Hi Everyone, My name is Natalie Dawson and I'm the daughter of an Australian man named Arno Dawson who went missing 3 years ago off his yacht (irwin Citation 40) in Chespeake Bay.
Recently I read a few posts from this website, posted back in Feb 2011, which were quite interesting. There have been many unanswered questions none of which we are any closer to answering, 3 years on. The whole situation has been very difficult for the family here and I personally have been left with taking over Dad's whole life which is challenging.
I'm wondering if anyone remembers my Dad going missing and if there's any information that we may have missed? I read a few comments regarding the Irwin Citation's ability to take on a journey of that calibre. There are so many "whys" and the experience and knowledge of the users of this forum may be able to shed some light on how this may have happened. Being from Australia, Dad was unfamiliar with the conditions, which I was told by the coastguard at the time are quite unforgiving particularly in Chesapeake Bay where the currents and tides behave quite differently to other bodies of water (Apparently 10 people went overboard that Winter and all were found but Dad). Any information would be appreciated. Thanks
