Default Recovered Viking

To all interested...The Viking was recovered apx 100miles SW of San Diego by an oil supply boat passing by, after it ran out of fuel. Owner fell overboard while attending to business on the aft deck...boat on auto pilot, doing 18 knts. He watched it run over the horizon...He was in the cold Pacific for 4 hrs, until picked up by a passing boat, hypothermic, but OK. Boat has now been returned to a very lucky guy.
