the vhf and uhf radios i work with go a lot farther than 20 miles, but i'm not sure they're available commercial... aircraft avionics though, and the total system weight/size is pretty tiny.

COAST GUARD FINDS BOAT WITH PERSON CLINGING TO IT

Posted by Mike Florio on March 2, 2009, 12:29 p.m.

In the end, it might be a very good thing that the Coast Guard opted not to call off the search for the four men (and two NFL players) who went missing at sea in a 21-foot fishing boat.

According to Bay News 9, the Coast Guard has found an overturned boat with a person clinging to it.

Assuming that it was the same boat that was carrying Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, Lions defensive end Corey Smith, Nick Schuyler, and William Bleakely, it is a sliver of good news amid a tragedy, because it means that three of the men have been lost.

Stay tuned for more.

UPDATE: The person who has been found reportedly is Nick Schuyler.

It's even more of a shame if they weren't wearing life vests.

Apparently the boat has been found and one person has been found on the boat.

Apparently Schuyler is alive and talking to the coast guard, so maybe he will be able to help in the search. I hope they find them.

man life vest or not...you'd think it'd be hard to survive floating in the water overnight wouldn't you? I'm not that experienced of a waterman myself, but I think that it would still be dangerous. I've got it on ESPN news all day here at the house. I"ll write something if I hear anything.

The fact that there was only one person still clinging to the remains of the boat that went out says that it is time for a few prayers for the other passengers.

Finding only one survivor with the boat is not the best of news...

Well, if they had life vests and the boat to hold on to, I wouldn't think it would be too hard to make it through one night. The water off the gulf coast in SW Florida is pretty warm. I'm guessing they weren't wearing their vests when the boat flipped. Regardless it's a really sad situation.

Oh wow. I didn't hear that. That's really rough.

Man I hope they find the other three guys. What a horrible situation. If the other three didn't have life vests on I doubt they would make it, they wouldn't be able to stay afloat for very long and they'd probably try too hard to compensate and end up tiring faster.

Man, I cannot imagine what they were thinking. It was very windy all along the Gulf Coast for several days now
