What happened to Argonaut?

Thought I would post this here to reach a larger audience. Gosselin's story has a stench to it and we will certainly be keeping an eye out for the boat.

Re: What happened to Argonaut?

Looks dodgy, alright. Need to watch Mr Gosselin like a hawk for a while...see how his lifestyle pans out. Until the Argonaut is found, that's about all that can be done.

Re: What happened to Argonaut?

According to Gosselin's story a well-found boat, designed to be unsinkable, goes down in mild conditions with no swell due to an open port. No attempt is made to contact their buddy boat one mile away and the buddy boat does not see them go down. The port looks to be about 4" and well above the waterlline.
