I just heard on the news that the over-turned 21 foot boat was found with one survivor hanging on for dear life. News said he was in a Tampa hospital, and that at 2 a.m. this morning they were all still alive and together, but then something happened and they got separated. Haven't heard what separated them, but am hopping that the others will be found soon - alvie and well. Anyone heard anything else on this? thanks

I'm in Florida and they've given up the searches for the other three. Unfortunately, it was pretty cold the night the boat capsized so there's little chance that they survived for long in the water. The survivor said that they floated away but they're not sure whether that's a real memory or the result of hypothermia. It was very dark and everyone was in the water.

Very sad story! Any updates to this story? Did they find those that are missing?

It's just sad. This morning on the news, they were interviewing the family of one of the sailors that is missing. I just felt so sorry for them. I know that if it were one of my brothers, I would certainly be doing as they were, pleading with everyone to pray that he would be found safely. The Atlantic waters are so cold this time of year, even that far south.
