- Andrew McAuley
this is the fella that drowned in sight of land, in an orange and yellow canoe?
to be honest it just made me very angry, I can’t say that I think he achieved anything except his own untimely demise. A terrible waste of a life, his poor kid.
he got so close too, still bloody sad and bloody stupid. why didn’t they track him with GPS??Posted 9 years ago
Good on him for trying, but like said above, why no tracking system?
Also, they said they were stuggling to understand his distress call. Now I know we had the benefit of subtitles, but even so, I don’t think it was that unclear. They didn’t seem to be making that much of an effort to find him early on.Posted 9 years agosolamandaMember
For those asking about a tracking system; it would be very hard on a vessel with a limited space for battery power, he’d need something bigger which wasn’t what he wanted to do. EPIRB is the only practical solution and the unit he was using would probably be too bulky to keep on person.Posted 9 years ago
