Any chance that the THT brethren could keep the upcoming conjecture, the could have, would have, should have discussion off this thread. We all know what they should have had on the boat. We all know what we all should have on our boats. Make that a discussion for another thread.

Remember the family members of these two are grasping for answers to THEIR crisis and are reading anything they can to get some sort of information that may help the current situation, including THT.

Keeping the faith for the return of these two!

Carry on.

Still hopeful for these guys and still feeling for/thinking about the family.
a registered in date EPIRB is compulsory to have on board any watercraft 5km away from land here in Australia.

not that it matters the fact its compulsory ,i would carry one on board anyway ..

awaiting good news ...

Because the percentage of boats that actually go offshore is pretty small. (I've had 15 boats, currently a 21ft and a 40ft. I don't fish and have NEVER taken a boat more than a 1/2 mile off shore running from one inlet to another (or in the Chesapeake bay)

This is smart. I would support something similar here in the States.

Storms yes.
I have had sudden large waves 3-4' out of nowhere when hooked to a rig, heading toward my stern in flat calm. Tanker out of sight, gas releases or mudslides underwater, etc. Always gotta be vigilant, ready to unhook and get bow turned into them in instant. Storms isnt only threat . Underwater gas release send a boat to bottom in a blink if it hits you

I was on a research vessel towing a 21' Carolina Skiff. The XO managed to get the tow line fouled, and before the deck crew could get an "ALL STOP!!!" to the wheelhouse, he's wrapped up the tow line in the port wheel. As soon as he put the starboard engine in gear and pulled forward slightly, the skiff flipped.

All of the science staff were divers, so 11 guys got in the water to right the vessel from the turtle position. We were successful, but it took 11 people all working together. Once we got it righted we gently towed it with the ship until it shed some water and could float on it's own and we pumped it out.

The manufacturer providing a free epirb with every boat is pretty bad marketing optics. it's not like it would really be "free", your purchase cost goes up $700 with it.
