Yikes!!! And complain about sailboats that are abandoned but not scuttled.
Yup, if nothing else, this story makes it plain how unlikely any plan to re-locate and salvage any of these boats being abandoned - the IP 38 abandoned off Charleston during TS Andrea back in June, for example - is to be successful...

One of the first things the guy said after stepping out of the CG helo, was that he was planning to salvage the boat, as if it had been left parked on the shoulder of an interstate highway, and all he needed was a tow truck to go back and retrieve it... Sorry, not bloody likely, pal - it's a damn big ocean out there...

Speaking of which, does anyone know whether they're STILL searching for the crew of NINA, which disappeared last June in the Tasman Sea?
