126 miles out is a long ways out. Hope this is nothing but it doesn’t look good.

I hope it is one of the Russian spy boats that probes the Carolina Coast!

Looks like debris on a weed line.

Yeah, and as of the 11 o’clock news last night, there were no reports of missing boats.

...receiving an alert from an unregistered emergency radio beacon..
It's a stretch, but Chinese fishing vessels have been known to visit the South Atlantic and been spotted off the West African coast. Russian and Mexican fishing vessels have also been stretching their legs. I'm curious if the USCG was able to see any writing on the debris.

Would Chinese, Russian, or Mexican vessels set off an EPIRB?

Wouldn't you, if your boat was sinking out from under you?

I would. But I didn't know if the Chin/Russ/Mex even carried EPIRBS.
