The three man crew of the Sean Seamour II were excited about their voyage across the Atlantic Ocean from Florida to France. The sailors were scheduled to depart on May 1, 2007, but a one day delay and unforeseen events caused significant problems for the crew. Shortly after they set sail, they hit dangerous weather. Being too far from a port, the men were at the mercy of the sea. Luckily, the captain was prepared with two radio beacons that alerted the Coast Guard of their distress. After a difficult rescue, the crew of the Sean Seamour II and Coast Guard arrived safely home.
