That's funny because at a press conference one of women said, "we would have died if we weren't rescued in another 24 hours". They are getting their "script" mixed up.


Where's the source?

Perhaps they just wanted some attention, or they were clueless and exaggerating?

Did they know there was an emergency beacon, did they know how to activate it?

I have 2 questions.

1. Where are their husbands?

2. Why did their men-folk allow them to do something so silly?

Who is buying this story? 5 months at sea? The gal on the right looks like she's been enjoying lots of burgers and french fries while at sea. Maybe there are floating McD's out there that also serve fatty doggie treats, too.

Is this a social experiment to see just what kind of fools will buy into this story?

Women stranded at sea say they thought they'd be dead within 24 hours





Appel and Fuiava said they sent distress calls for 98 consecutive days, but got nothing. They had drifted thousands of miles in the wrong direction when a Taiwanese fishing vessel found them and allowed them to make a mayday call, they said. They said they could not speak on why they felt they only had 24 hours to live. “I would love to answer that question now. I’m not actually allowed to answer that as long as we are on the vessel,” Appel said before going on to detail how their sailboat was damaged while it was being towed by the Taiwanese vessel.


Odd, they 'felt' they only had 24 hours to live and could not answer as long as they were on the rescue vessel(?). How did they know for sure they would be dead in 24 hours - was the hull about to fail?

I have two answers.

1. Sitting watching TV eating pizza, wings and drinking beer.

2. They are too caught up watching TV and didn't notice they were gone.

Suicide pact claim, perhaps?

They've said the 24 hours to die statement a few times and it seems like they wanted to make it a more dramatic, "just in time" rescue. Makes for a better book/movie deal.

If you are without power and had an EPIRB and didn't use it.....Something is fishy here and it isn't the smell of the boat.


Anyone going more than 5-10 miles off the coast should have an EPIRB. Most personal vessels VHF radios are only 25 watts.
EPIRB or even TOPSPOTS are basic gear for any experienced mariner.

These ladies has other motives.

I am not ruling out the conspiracy theories going on in this thread.

This sounds familiar.


articles.latimes.com...



The Navy came upon Pham 300 miles off Costa Rica on Sept. 17, nearly four months after the Southern California man had set off from Long Beach for a short, easy sailing jaunt to Santa Catalina Island.

Somewhere on that 22-mile journey, a storm blew in and whipping winds broke the Sea Breeze's mast. Then the outboard motor failed, and so did the radio, according to Navy officials.

'"For two months the wind continued nonstop," Pham said. The breezes augmented the ocean currents that pushed him steadily south.


And others.

It was either that or go with the standard "making sammiches so they won't starve" bit.

It as a coin toss.

Excellent point. Obviously, without a man around, these women were completely clueless on how to operate or do anything.


ETA: Maybe there was a spider on the emergency beacon and that resulted in an epic 5 month standoff with the beacon being held hostage as the spider slowly weaved its web. As the women watched on in horror and fear, standing on a seat making high pitched screams?
