Lim was also towing a nine-foot pink dingy behind the Watercolour.

The dinghy would have been on deck. The dodger also isn't blue canvas as described in the news, but fiberglass unpainted.

Paul is a good friend.

I'm sure he's fine and just a bit overdue .
He does have one of the better well founded vessels out there.
Dad has the 42

I figured it was the typical inaccurate news article. Do you know if he actually left on the day the article says? If so, he's pushing ,3-4 weeks overdue.

Hopefully he'll just have another exciting chapter for the book he's writing.
