Strange situation that happened off the coast of California at he end of February. The sailboat "Charm Blow" sent out a distress call (in the link below) to say he was with his wife, their 4 year old son, another small cousin, and they were about to abandon ship. They supposedly did and nobody ever found them. Not them, not their boat (which was not registered) or any debris in the water. Nobody has showed up to claim a body either. Now surely this world is not sick enough to fake something like thi, right? If it is fake, they need to find the person responsible and cut out their tongue IMO.
A family of four, including a 4-year-old child, is missing off the coast of Monterey, California after taking their sailboat named Charm Blow out for ...
I call BS. GPS and EPIRB failed? No.
I am not a sailor or even a water guy for that matter, but 65 miles off the coast seems like a hell of a long ways out. Especially to go for a day.
EPIRBs are really expensive
If they aren't bothering to register a boat, I doubt they are paying $800 an EPIRB.
Especially in a sailboat.
I swim 65 miles off shore in shark infested waters and punch sharks in the face daring them to bite me. That's just how I roll.
On a 30 ft boat it's standard I think.
Regardless, open ocean sailing, in water temp that would kill you in ten minutes (the children in 3 min), with a family, in forecasted rough weather, not having EPIRB... That's not an accident, it's deliberate suicide.
Add unregistered boat, no missing persons report and none of it passes the sniff test at all.
I prob should note that I grew up in a huge sailing community but I'm not a sailor. I just learned about this stuff after a buddy of mine died last year in an ocean race off the Farallon Islands (5 died).
