The Schooner Fantone was lost 20 years ago today.
I am about 1/3 the way thorough The Ship and the Storm: Hurricane Mitch and the Loss of the Fantome
I was prompted to give the book a try by this post by the book’s author at the Hurricane Florence thread
That’s a point not everyone appreciates, the discussion if invaluable for determining forecast uncertainty but without internet access it’s not easily obtained at sea. So, thought I’d give the book a try.
At first didn’t think I was going to like it, more personal information about the crew etc than I care about but its turning out to be a good read. Interesting the way things unfolded between the captain, the owners and the forecasts.
Review of the book here.
