19 Reasons why the "Lost at Sea" surivival story smells fishy

Postby Blue Jackets » Wed Nov 01, 2017 8:54 am

In case you haven't heard about it.

Here’s their account of what happened, in brief:
They set off from Hawaii in May of this year, bound for Tahiti. They were caught in a storm that both ruined their engine and rendered their mast and sails useless. They were unable to contact help. They drifted for five months, living off of dry food and a handheld watermaker (takes the salt out of seawater so you can drink it) until they were rescued by a fishing boat and, eventually, the Navy.

This article picks it all apart. Long, but good read.

I hadn't actually read much about this story, only saw headlines. But that article is a good read. Those ladies are definitely full of shit.

I knew nothing about their claims or about sailing, but that was an entertaining article. He pokes so many giant holes in their story.

This is hilarious. They got called out soooo hard. Also, the IASIP implication joke made me laugh at the end. I liked reading this.

You might say, he takes the wind out of their sails!

I was looking more into it earlier today after reading this article. One of the ladies is an aspiring actress. 100% chance of this whole story being a publicity stunt to get her more exposure.

I really want them to get on some TV show and then just get drilled. Have the author of this article interview them
