"A spellbinding moment-by-moment account of seventy-two hours in the lives of eight young fishermen, some of whom would never set foot on dry land again. On the morning of November 21, 1980, two small Massachusetts lobster boats set out for Georges Bank, unaware that the only weather buoy on Georges Bank was malfunctioining and that a colossal storm was brewing. Meticulously researched and vividly told, FATAL FORECAST is first and foremost a tale of miraculous survival. By turns tragic, thilling, and inspiring, this story deserves a place among the greatest survival tales ever told. Equally riveting are the stories of the brave men and women from the Coast Guard and the crew of a nearby fishing boat who imperiled their own lives that day in order to save the lives of others.
