Thee was one I loved and hated at the same time. It was a thread about a missing Schooner (I think) with family
and crew. Many people banded together here and other forums
to try and find them via satellite
link. There was an outpouring of concern and it was a great example of what concerned cruisers are capable of.
On the other hand there were those who took a more morbid and defeatist attitude of "they're gone and to forget about them". Interesting enough I met one of the nay-sayers in La Paz
. He was a pretty negative guy and his cruise
ended in divorce and selling of their boat
