SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A San Diego-based Coast Guard crew found two missing boaters in good condition south of Catalina Island early Wednesday.
The men, who were overdue from a sailing trip on Tuesday, were found aboard their 26-foot sailboat about 4 a.m. and escorted to Avalon Harbor, according to the U.S. Coast Guard's public affairs office.
Using a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter, 87-foot patrol boat and C-130 aircraft, the federal maritime agency spent nearly 11 hours searching for the men after their families reported them missing.
Dana Point sailors Albert Bosco and Kirk Williams left a "float plan" with their families but didn't stick to it, Coast Guard Petty Officer Adam Eggers said.
Family members reported the two missing when they were not back in port by Tuesday night.
Eggers said the vessel was poorly equipped.
"They didn't even have a VHF radio," he said.
Investigators were considering if the skipper should be cited, Eggers said, but added that the Coast Guard rarely goes after people for search-and-rescue costs, unless the report of a missing person can be proven to be intentionally false.
