I'm sure some of you know of that story of the 65' Donzi that survived Hurricane Darby back in 1992 at sea. 30 Straight hours of waves up to 30 ft or more, and the boat miraculously survived in the end, but lost afterward. All 7 aboard survived.
If you haven't heard of it, or want the story in more detail, you can check it out in the link I have below. Knowing Roscioli, I'm sure some of the details are exaggerated
But most is true. http://www.donziyachts.com/article.php?file=nowhere
Well, I somehow stumbled upon footage of the actual occurance. It just so happens that the weather channel show named Storm Stories made an episode of this, and 4 of the 7 men were interviewed on the matter, with some actual footage used in the beginning and end.(the middle was reenacted with a much smaller viking). http://www.weather.com/multimedia/vi...www.blinkx.com
I guess I should get a Donzi soon, so I'll know that if I'm ever caught at sea during a hurricane my chances of survival are higher.
