I think many of us saw / thought that from the outset. There are questions to ask and things to learn (or at least understand) but (for me at least) not today. And, Capngeo seems to prefer that take place in another thread. Sounds fair to me.

I'm not a superstitious guy but I would never be on a boat and think it couldn't sink.

Condolences. Seemed like a fairly young guy, possible accidental gybe resulting in boom impact? Sad, regardless.

Very sad to hear this outcome. To H34, capngeo, friends, and family I send my deepest condolences. I hope Jay has fair winds for the rest of his journey.

Re: Sailor Lost; 406 EPIRB Activated 30nm N of Key West

From Psalm 107 (The Sailors Psalm)

They that go down to the sea in ships, that do
business in great waters;
These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in
the deep.
For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which
lifteth up the waves thereof.
They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the
depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,
and are at their wit's end.
Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he
bringeth them out of their distresses.
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof
are still.
Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he
bringeth them unto their desired haven.


Fair winds and following seas, Captain Jay....

Actually it does make sense. I just think no one wanted to say it out loud. I'm just glad the coast of Cuba caught him and he didn't drift for days more before making a landfall.

It's hard to say. My husband died of a a cerebral aneurism at age 60. We were told that it could have killed him at a much younger age. Aortic and abdominal aneurisms aren't that uncommon either. It's just not common any more for someone to die of natural causes so young, but it does happen. What we do know is that he didn't die saiing foolishly. I think if he were my friend for family that would give me great comfort.

Jay's father was retired Coast Guard serving in Alaska. After his service he obtained his masters degree. Jay was very proud of his father.

Last year, Jay lost his mother. In the tragedy of loosing Jay... perhaps there is a goodness, that Jay is now with his mother.

Soon Jay's body will be returned back to Alaska

if Jay was close to ft myers beach after leaving marq key then he prob missed keywest found his self in the stream and very tired in heavy seas slipped hit his head or bleed out and died that's what I think.he should have been advised to stay in ft myers and wait it out and rest.

My most sincere condolences to Jay's family and to his friends as well. It is good he was doing something he liked, but I confess I had hoped for better news.

My condolences to Jay's family. He sounded like a fun guy that I would have enjoyed meeting.
