CF Member Rescued After Being Lost at Sea For 66 Days-Merged

All, just read an article that I believe is talking about liveaboardl. I'll link it here. Apparently he was declared missing at sea aboard Angel back on Jan 23rd. He was just rescued by a German freighter 200 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras. Amazingly, he survived.

Did I miss something? The only place in either
article that says anything about "overturned
hull" is in a caption to one of the pictures.
Wouldn't that be germane to the story?

He looks happy to be back. I'm pleased too.

It was on the ABC national news tonight. Very brief with little details but a picture of the sailor and boat, probably taken before this voyage. Looks like an Alberg 30. Did say he survived by fishing, but not sure how they know...

They asked the fish demonstrating outside the White House.

re: CF Member Rescued After Being Lost at Sea For 66 Days-Merged

should be an interesting story. 2 months within 200M of the US coast and no rescue? Surely there must be a bit of traffic out there. Glad hes OK. Theres been some nasty weather around there the last couple of months, a couple of boats abandoned...

Capsized for 200 days? Muat've been a cat. By the laws of physics, a mono would have righted.

You used to own an Alberg 35, or did you actually own Angel?
