Jeez, I'm not lost or missing until I say so, cell phones are fluky and the sails ought to get him where he's going...what's the big deal?

If you're off Newbury heading for Beverly for repairs and end up four miles from Race Point (no cell reception that near the Cape?) it sounds to me like you may need some luck to make it to FLA.

Well, they refused assistance, so where's the issue? The only problem I see was telling someone ashore to expect them to arrive at a certain time and place, and, yes, they'd be in cell-phone reach.

I'm betting there was some cussing when the coasties contacted them. Seems they did know where they were, after all.
