Mechanical Emergency - Mar 3, 2007
Friday 2007/03/16 at 23:50z, Leslie K7LEL/MM (SV Carina) calls into the Net requesting assistance for a vessel she has in
radio contact. The 42' Hatteras MV Warrior, with 8 POB is without engines and drifting near the island of Cebaco on the Pacific
side of Panama.
Utilizing the MMSN and with phone calls initiated from Bob K5SIV, help was sought. Fortunately while overseas calls are being
made to various parties, one engine onboard MV Warrior kicks over and starts. The captain notifies SV Carina and MMSN that
no assistance is needed. Fred W3ZU, Bob K5SIV and Leslie K7LEL/MM (monitoring on VHF 16), wrap up the event as MV Warrior
heads for safe anchor and a satellite phone.
