How a Shipwrecked Crew Survived 10 Days Lost at Sea
 
The story of how three crewmen lived more than a week, in the middle of the Pacific, in a wrecked sailboat with almost nothing. On November 25, 2019, Chris Carney. and his two-man crew, Pete Brown and Jun “Sumi” Sumiyama, set off from Japan on their way to Hawaii in a 42-foot sailboat, the Coco-Haz III ...
It was December 19, and we were about a thousand miles from Oahu, Hawaii ...

I'd dispute the use of the word "shipwrecked" in this case. :)

Thanks for sharing that Gord. One never knows when life will go sideways on you

Please do. Will you cite your source(s), perhaps with twenty-seven eight-by-ten color glossy photographs with circles, and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was, to be used as evidence?

" It was morning when it happened. I got my raingear on and went up on the deck to make some changes to our course. I stuck my head up, and I couldn’t believe it—the mast was gone.

Situational awareness?

Yeah - three guys on the boat and no-one was on watch. I agree they weren't "shipwrecked." Lucky that they survived. Thanks for the link Gord.

After (stealth) dismasting, they were rolled/pitchpoled (unclear), and flooded.

Pathetic to criticize from behind your electronic screens. They were out there and they survived. Good job guys pulling it together and making it!

Oh the irony!
I stand by my criticism - they had a crew of three on board but apparently didn't have anyone keeping watch at all during the night. The story is missing a lot of details, but from what was written it does seem they managed well with the cards that were dealt. They were lucky, in that the mast didn't smash a hole thru the hull while they slept, the hull didn't break apart after the tumbling, and the second ship saw them.

On a nearly totally disabled yacht with limited food and water in the middle of the Pacific...oh yeah I want to stay with the boat and complete the voyage rather than get rescued.

I am sensing some mild embellishment (we're manly men) specifically made up for us guys on the couch and/or in front of the screen and keyboard.

Quite the story, I'll give you that. I'd be inclined to double check the weather when all this was supposed to have happened.

Gord,
Very funny to take part of the "Massacree" (aka Alice's Restaurant) into your reply. (after evidence you forgot "against us")

Not to be pedantic but
shipwrecked = noun. the destruction or loss of a ship, as by sinking. the remains of a wrecked ship. destruction or ruin::biggrin:

And a blind judge (or in this case thousands)
