Holes emerge in Hawaii women's tale of survival in the Pacific Fox News Facebook Twitter Comment

Many many holes in their story. No storms, working EPIRB. Why?

What's to lie about?

From Fox news:

Something is wishy-washy here.

Two Hawaii women who claimed they were lost at sea for five months and “would have been dead within 24 hours” had the U.S. Navy not picked them up last week never activated their emergency beacon, the Coast Guard said Tuesday, adding to a growing list of inconsistencies and questions that cast doubt on their harrowing tale of survival in the Pacific Ocean.

"If the thing was operational and it was turned on, a signal should have been received very, very quickly that this vessel was in distress," Phillip R. Johnson, a retired Coast Guard officer, said Monday in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

1. They looked pretty damn healthy

For a group who were going to be dead in 24 hours.

2. I had doubts right away

When I saw their rigging, and it appeared they could have jury rigged something enough to get to shore.

None of this adds up, 18 days to go 1,000 miles, maybe if your'e sailing HMS Victory, not in a modern sailboat.

But what's the point?

3. a year's worth of food, multiple GPS, multiple radios and two dogs.

 

But apparently no tools or spare parts.

Walking away from a serviceable SAILboat isn't heroic.
