    There was a comment on one of the news stations facebook story about this that said they had been found. I haven't heard anything beyond that though as to any details or if that was just a rumor or not.

      According to the Anchorage Daily Dispatch KSKA Miner News, the boat's been found and everybody's okay. They had engine trouble and no radio to let people know.

              Yeah no kidding! I guess akmike is really old

              I don't think akmike was implying that we should give these people a free pass because they are "young". I don't care if you 20 or 80. Every person that goes out on the water needs to be adequately prepared to handle a situation like this. I understand how you might accidentally run out of gas, but to have no radio or communication device to let anyone know that you need some assistance is just plain stupid.

                Remember they did have a float plan.

                  Ran out of gas at Knight Island? Really? That's totally screwing up. As for the float plan, they said they were going to Naked.

                  The news this evening said they were hoping for a good Samaritan or the Coast Guard to tow them back. When I screwed up off Montague, I paid to get towed back.

                    A lot of those bayliners have poor cruising range, but they must have not been full when they left, or did a bunch of running around. Knight passage isn't that far from naked

                      No it isn't, but to run out of gas that far out from port, is totally screwing up. I'm glad they were found safe, but at this point, they should have to pay, or a friend should run gas out to them, to get that boat back. The Coast Guard shouldn't have to tow them back.

                        Yes, that is screwing up bad. Maybe they had a fuel leak?

                          Well I'm very surprised they made it to Knight Passage with that nasty weather Sunday. We turned around half way down Perry passage with all the charter boats. 5' seas at South Perry isn't fun and it was worse farther south. Glad they are ok though....

                            Why in the world would anyone leave port without a VHF radio on board?... at minimum one.
