Was that over/near Kickin' Jenny?From the timeline document posted earlier:
"Richard sent 2 locations N29041.9641 W078058.0043 N2941.9991 W078057.9240"
Unless I am mis-interpreting the position data, and if that is the general area of the incident, the depth should have been much greater than 150 feet. In any case, the matter of depths reminded me of an incident I experienced just west of the Grenadines, when on a gentle, but very dark night, I saw off my port beam what proved to be white water ahead of a single wave which quickly washed over the 75' yacht I was sailing, flooding into the companionway. Later, I noticed that in that area, the depth changes from more than 2000 meters to less than 20 in a very short distance, which apparently caused the swell to pile up. I can imagine it could be seriously dangerous in any kind of weather, and could result in the sort of incident which Richard Bonilla experienced.
