Under the circumstances.... it is understandable. I am sure no one thinks you posted that with any malice in your heart.

I was out yesterday from Sebastian and ran north, didn’t see a single other boat out there. It was pretty snotty when the storms got close. A Big storm ran just north of me hopefully he didn’t get caught in that. Hope they return safe.

Looks like the CG has deployed assets in the search. Several boats, a C130, and a helicopter. Have faith that the CG will bring your BIL home.

I am not familiar with the area. How far is the 8A reef from shore? did they have an EPIRB? was it stormy yesterday?

Hope they are found alive and well.

No news yet. No EPIRB unfortunately. Definitely have faith in the USCG

Thank you again for the prayers.

Maybe a mod could move it to the boating forum
