Williard or William G of Rochester, NY

We are at Portside Marina in Morehead City (a fine place by the way) waiting for Sean to get out of our way so we can go offshore to the BVI. A boat came in at 11 pm last night with its mainsail cutoff, the mizzen shredded,d no anchors and evidence the anchors had swung freely, damaging the bow. Shortly after it arrived, we are told, three men left the boat with their gear. There is no one apparently on board this morning. The boat is a Bristol 40 or 45 named wither Williard or William G. And has a sticker saying it is a member of the Sodus Maritime captains Association. If it was a delivery crew they might not have notified the owner. If anyone knows him he might want to know as the dockage fees are $1.50 a day.

Re: Williard or William G of Rochester, NY

The word from the Coast Guards who came to retrieve their lines is tht there were five or six people on board, all of whom suffered severe bruising and the owner who is the hospital with a broken shoulder. They told the CG they were rolled and lost their electricity and fouled their food and water. Only have electric heads. Two crew showed up to scrub the boat wearing rubber gloves. It must have been a harrowing 200 miles under jib alone. CG towed them the last 20 or 30 miles.
