Local Catalina 42 that competed in our racing events regularly went missing last month on a solo trip to Kauai, was located and boarded by the USCG about 1300 miles west of Honolulu - derelict and no sign of Gary.

I didn't know him personally, but the boat was fairly active over the past few years. Sad news, but at least some closure for his family.

They left it adrift? Oh, that's a good idea.

Some CG Cutters use derelicts as targets for deck gun drills.

I hear so much about how ocean going motor vessels don't keep regular or good watches, so it was heartening to hear that C:Drive was spotted by one.  Too bad about the skipper.
