never implied was in gulf--merely posted news.

at 0752, just minutes after it happend, that was theONLY word that was posted ANYWHERE.
snce then , there has been a bit more--like, was a production, not drilling rig. that it was not leaking or spewing. so far. tjhat5 it was vermillion 380, just miles west of the bp rig. but at 0752, merely minutes after the event, what i -posted was the ONLY word out there. i tuned in to wwl fm, NOLA for news. if you want GOOD info, go there. wwl, new orleans.

A sailboat crossing the Atlantic collided with a submerged object 600 nautical miles west of the Azores....This was one of my biggest fears last year when we did the crossing. I am so happy to see that everyone onboard is safe.
