"lets hoist the sails, and get going while the conditions are still good. "
These three men are preparing the sean seamer two before they attempt to set sail across the atlantic ocean from Florida to france. they are provisioning food and water before hand.
"They will never find us in these conditions!"
The trio encounters some bad weather after two days of perfect sailing. They are stuck in the gulf stream with strong winds and waves up to 40 feet. They are being rolled around in the small cabin, and fell threatened enough to activate the EPIRB safety system.
The eighty foot waves, rain, and wind made it almost impossible for the coast guardsman to locate the men on the raft. The hurricane plane had to constantly fly back and forth at low altitude to keep an eye on the raft. They tried to deploy a secondary safety raft and supplies, but the wind took the raft as soon as it left the aircraft.
The three men are now huddling together in a small venal raft waiting for a rescue. The sean seamour sank with all its supplies, and the men are bobbing around in 80 foot waves. The Coast Guard dispatched a H-3 helicopter, and a hurricane plane to try and locate the raft . They deployed a rescue swimmer to go and bring the survivors into the rescue basket.
All three sailors were carefully loaded into the H-3 helecopter, and, and then the rescue swimmer drew was also hoisted up. That did not mean the crew and survivors were now in "calm Water". They still had to make it to base with little gas, fight strong winds, and the rare occurance of having a rouge wave hit the helecopter and swamp it.
"Thank god, we are all safe and sound. Now lets get back to the air base pronto!"
All the three men were checked out by hospital staff, and quickly recovered. Jp's ribs healed, and he replenished his body with water and food. All men were glad they were still alive, and they all became very good friends. No evidence of the sean seamour was ever recovered, and if they were not to have there epirb then they would not have been recovered either.
