    Hi,

    As I was the build Chief Engineer of Huntress when it was known as 655 then Sea Sedan and sailed around the world on her I would tend to agree that is her in the video.

    Ahhh K1W1, this explains your emails. There must have been several boats called Huntress. The Huntress I was on in early 1997 (and late 1996) was being retrofitted in San Diego South Bay. The English Engineer was Joe O'Donnell of Blackpool (Knott-end-on-Sea) England. Hearing from an old friend, I heard that this Huntress burned in The Med. Here is the article: Navy273.Jpg Ionian Sea, Western Mediterranean (July 28Th, 1998) - - The 144 Foot Yacht 'Huntress' Lost To Fire During An Early Morning Fire In The Engine Room. All Seven Crewmembers Were Rescued By Sailors And Marines Assigned To The Amphibious Assault Ship USS Saipan (Lha 2), Shortly After Abandoning Ship In The Ionian Sea. The American, British And Australian Crew Were Brought Aboard Saipan For Medical Evaluation. No One Was Seriously Injured. Huntress Was En Route To Italy When The Ship's Engine Room Became Engulfed In Flames. The USS Saipan On A Regularly Scheduled Deployment In The Mediterranean Sea Responded To Their Distress Call. U.S. Navy (Photo By U.S. Navy/Getty Images). So perhaps that explains - we are talking about two different Huntress'.
