Missing Boater ?

Just caught a news report of a sailboat drifting in Lloyd Harbor on Long Island Sound, covered with blood with no sign of the owner. According to the report on WABC, the owner was last seen on the boat Thursday afternoon. I was sailing in Jamaica Bay that afternoon and the winds were about 15 kts from the east. Not really difficult conditions. Hope this turns out well, but sounds ominous.

This doesn't bode well. Let's hope ...

Bloody Sailboat Found in Long Island Sound

So you think it's only some areas of the Carribbean that are dangerous? This just in:

"Authorities say they are investigating why the boat named Caramar was found off of Lloyd Harbor, covered in blood, and with no one on board.
Witnesses are said to have seen the owner of the boat board the vessel, but never return.
His car is still in the parking lot.
Police have searched the Long Island Sound for hours.
The sailboat is small, with a blue flag on the mast.
A police officer is nearby guarding the boat."

Bloody Boat Found Off Lloyd Harbor « CBS New York- News, Sports, Weather, Traffic and the Best of NY

Since these Long Island waters are not known for piracy and crime. I think there are three possibilies here

1) Faked Death
2) Real strong dissagreement with the crew.
3) One real tough Bluefish that did not want to be caught.

I'd sure like to know where the dingy is? Stay tuned!

Ha! Your option #3 was the first thing that I thought of. Those fish have an amazing ability to spray blood everywhere...

How about a successful suicide.
It might take some time to recover the shotgun, if ever.

There were two current threads going on about his incident, so I merged them.

Possibly. The owner mentioned to one of the Marina workers that he was depressed. But could have been a ruse too. Don't know about anybody else but, I am happiest when I'm on my boat. As far as finding the shotgun knowing those waters some local fisherman will snag it at some point. BTW looks like it was a Bristol 24 or 26. My first boat was a 24. Great little boat too. IMO he would have been better off just taking off in it to get away from what troubled him. A few days away from land can cure a lot of ills IMO.

... The man called his son and told him that he planned to take his own life, police said.
The Long Beach resident lost his wife last year; they had been married for many years. Police said a suicide note was found ...
