This seems to have missed CF over the holidays. It's old news now, but thought some might be interested.
The Japanese sailboat Coco Haz III with 3 persons on board was dismasted ~800 miles NW of Hawaii. Enroute Japan-Hawaii. No EPIRB, search was apparently started on the basis of missed comms schedule. USCG dropped supplies. Crew picked up by freighter. Boat adrift.
