2023 November, near Pea Island, Atlantic Coast, “The increasingly stormy surf drove my boat onto the sandbank, where I am still trapped today.

Pictures from Facebook

Attila "The storm last Friday (24-25.November) destroyed everything inside! And  I was sleeping there! The wind was in the night stronger and stronger, 12feet waves over rolled my boat and filled my cockpit like a swimming pool and pushed thousands of gallons water inside. The never ending waves shacked hard every 6-7 seconds and this power shattered the furniture and all my things and equipment to trash! I was jumping into the wild se about six a clock in the morning to rescue my life, the boat was full of water! “Nice” people coming to my boat, seeing the tragedy and stealing my equipment, broke in and took my equipment to the beach, stole my life raft, my propane , the cranks of my winches, everything! They are a shame of this nice country! I need now every dollar to save my boat, my life, my future. Please help me to bring my treasure back to the sea, where she belongs! Thank you for heart and understanding! I’m really in distress!"
