Wow what a rescue
story...lucky man indeed!
You don't have to ask very many boaters around these parts
to find out traversing the PNW coast line this time of year is foolhardy at best....But he obviously did not check the weather
...we have had a low positioned off the coast this past week that has had the normal flows exaggerated by a good amount...Just watching one news cast would have shown he was looking at winds on the nose the whole of the Washington
coast line...Not a good sail plan IMHO
Interesting comment about the old cement boat falling apart...Im guessing there might be more there between the lines then just a rudder
I thought they had their geography mixed up until the part about being driven north came up.
Ya gotta love helicopter pilots...well done!
