USCG news release reports the safe rescue of 2 crew from S/V Celedon off the coast on North Carolina:

Vessel was reportedly taking on water and crew unable to find where the water was coming in at. Will leave it to others to comment further if desired.

Methinks they were long on ambition and short on bottle.... 3ins of water and they abandoned.... definitly more suited to the Winniebago...

40 knots and 12 foot seas is pretty nasty. Unless they had it dialed in their boat was the ocean's piņata.

40 knots and 12 foot seas is not crisis conditions for any reasonably well found boat. A little rough up wind, but even a pleasure downwind. We did a whole passage in 40 to 45 knots and four or five meter seas in August, including the awful Portland Race. Since it was down wind, it was no problem. We played Mahler in the cockpit and loved it. Part of the trip was on a beam reach, and we did ship green water in the center cockpit very high above the water, when an especially huge wave decided to crawl on board. But all in all, it was wonderful.

Funny post, boatman! I didn't know you could even say [alternate form of "cats"] on the CF.

The real question is why they "bailed"? (or didn't)

Well, it was taking on water but they didn't say how fast or what brand of boat. 3" isn't a whole lot though even for a shallow bilge. I would suspect a thruhull went bad, a shaft log or rudder shaft broke.

If the boats in that bad of shape, maybe it's time for an insurance claim.

Sounds like they went to panic stations a bit prematurely but hey we weren't there so who's to say?

Once again, we seem to be casting harsh judgments, based upon very little evidence & wild speculation.
Shame!

I'm not saying it's a crisis but it might have been much worse. Throw in a mixed swell and make them hand steer with a short handed crew and the whole thing turns into a nightmare. If you like sailing in 45 knot winds with 15' swells, more power to you. That's a little too hot for me unless there's no other choice.

Sorry, folks, but you need to understand where this boat was before you pass judgement.

Like the discussion about trying to enter the Bahamas through a cut during a rage, 40+ knot winds from the NW against the Gulf Stream creating 12+' waves going NE and a 3 - 5 second period is seriously hazardous for a small boat, heck even a big boat!

Fair Winds,
Mike
