Jennifer Appel and Tasha Fuiava's Fishy Lost At Sea Story

Hot Air: Jennifer Appel and Tasha Fuiava's tale sounds a bit fishy...

So what is the motivation for spinning a (likely) false tale like this? Maybe Robert Mueller can get right on it, he hates being lied to and will throw the book at you.  

They could have also sailed to the Micronesian "Atlantis" (what is left out of that click bait fake news story about the ancient city was was "discovered" that appeared on DRUDGE today is  Nan Mandol is no secret and has been known about for a very long time. Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia also gets regular flight service via United (about a $1000 RT from LA). You can readily go visit there.

  1. I remember first hearing the story and thinking: I can see how two women might survive being stranded at sea for that long, but how did they manage to do so and keep both dogs alive?

    I've read Louis Zamperini's story, the story of the Essex, and even Mutiny on the Bounty, but in each of those stories, hard sacrifices had to be made.

    Anyway, whether truth or lie; the story of these two women didn't seem interesting enough for me to click beyond the headlines. But looking at the photos of their rescue, they look in great shape for being stranded at sea for that long.

  2. If you have plenty of supplies and a water desalination device, it is not inconceivable... While the fishing in the open ocean tends to be poor, a boat tends to start to attract pelagic schools of fish, especially if it is just drifting. You can catch fish. They all appear in good health.

    But this appears to be a cover story. What were these gals really up to? My guess (and that is all it is), a bit of smuggling.

  3. Would be interesting to know exactly what the damage to the rig was. The roller foresail looks OK, with that alone they could have made harbour. From the start I have found this story a bit odd. Journalists are supposed to ask questions, but so far they have failed to do so.
