Re: Tragedy Strikes.

I would not dive there. The current rips through there. We anchored there once at slack tide. I had to dive on the anchor and drive the tip of the anchor though the cement hard scoured bottom. When the tide came in I surfed the anchor chain a while and was doubtfull of getting back to the boat with fins on if I got far from the boat.

Not sure why you posted you won't do the same! I too very recently had a tragedy with my boat, It's only money which can easily be replaced, everything else CANNOT be.

Well stated. I was not aware of this when I suggested diving the anchor. Do NOT dive the anchor area if this is the case, at least not without knowledgeable local help and on a slack tide. Better to lose the boat and not know about the anchor, than lose your life!

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

svGenesis, I'm sure GoingWalkabout means to say, "I want to do the same." Not "I won't to...".

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Thanks again everyone.

Dagny was spotted tonight December 23rd at 5:30pm, reported by the USCG, at 27-03.7N 79-16.1W. 24hrs after drifting off.

I am trying to map it right now but my connection is bad right now...

BTW I got medication. Taking it one day at a time.

Gil.

Thanks. Sorry. I did mean want to. I'm sitting in bed with a hugely painful ruptured shoulder ligament. Apart from being bombed out on pain meds I'm doing one finger typing. Sorry. I'll have to sign up for PayPal I think.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Hope you feel better soon!

As far as I know, you don't need an account with PP if you use your credit card.

Great news, we are praying for you and your vessel :-). Just post if you run into anymore obstacles and need help finding resources for retrieval.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Well, the news is progress and at least relieves your uncertainty. I am not sure it is "great" though as it may well be very hard to recover.

I did just try to send a little Xmas gift via Paypal but it tried to force me to sign up and I have run up against that in the past. Does anyone know a way to do it without being coerced into making an account? I can't see a clear way myself.

I somehow managed to miss this post

Like Muckle Flugga said, it's progress.
Hope they find her and can bring her back to you!
