How many more of these rescues before the CG asks,"will that be MC or VISA" before any rescue
operation begins. There funds are getting thin like every govt agency.
Really. The part of the story I found most horrifying is this: ""My Children's Toy" wasn't Williams' first sailboat purchase on eBay. He has bought four others since 2010, traveling from Texas to Maryland to New Orleans."
Yikes. At least he had the presence of mind to anchor
in 120' of water
before requesting a rescue!
Next time someone gets on the forum and wants to know whether he should purchase
a boat he just found on ebay, we should direct him to this thread.
