He hates oatmeal and pasta... it gives him diarrhea.

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

I have a long history on CF of supporting people who have really had problems at sea; indeed, Jim and I have solved a few of our problems at sea, as well. This is the only time my doubts have seriously been raised as to veracity.

There is no factual support for this story, and quite a bit to say that it is erroneously represented and reported.

That's all I have to write about it for now.

Me too. I’ve only broken from my support twice; the first time when Rebel Heart had their episode, but that was primarily due to Eric coming down so hard on others who wound up in trouble... and now with these two knuckleheads.

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

Ok they said they were in the devils triangle well in the pacific it is actually called the dragons triangle.
My question is where does it even get close to the 160°w by o°lat ?

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

This documentary comes to mind.

Check out "Deep Water" on Netflix
www.netflix.com/title/70075820

Beginning to sound like a Teignmouth Electron voyage to me!

I haven't been anywhere near that part of the world, so I honestly don't know.
The water across most of the Pacific is too deep for that sort of thing. You won't even get 5 knots in open water. 5 knots is common only in atoll entrances.

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

Am i the only one that thinks that fouling looks jlike the boat has spent some time on her port side aground somewhere.

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

In one of the video interviews, one of the sailors mentioned the "Devil's Sea."

Here is a post I started that explains what she means by that, showing the area, and a rational explanation that debunks the myth.

I haven't sailed there so am happy to be contradicted by those that have but AFAIK there are no ocean currents in that part of the pacific which match the peak speeds of the Agulhas or florida currents and even those max out less than half that.

The claim in the video was that they were doing 4 knots east against a 10 knot west-going current. Presumably that 10kn was calculated by adding the GPS speed "backwards" to the log speed. Now assume there's some rounding errors, they were actually doing 4.5 kn, there's an actual 1kn westwards flow from the south equatorial current. Now assume these north american seafarers derived their easterly heading from the side the sun was on...

whilst unlikely it may be another possible explanation to add to "freak current" and "hyperbole".

if 25 knots gusting to 30 translates to a force 11 hurricane,then a 1-2 knot counter current could easily translate to a 10 knot current against you on my non gender specific bullshitometer calculator
