    Survival at Sea, Stove by an Orca
    From: Frank Reed

    Here's a story of a schooner in the Pacific sailing from the Galapagos to the Marquesas that was sunk by a killer whale:

    They all survived in a little dinghy, and there's a point where they were able to estimate their latitude by sighting Polaris (not much detail in the article but you get the idea). As I started into the article, I was waiting for the part about the EPIRB but then in the fifth paragraph I realized why there was no EPIRB. The article is a good read by itself, and it's such a low key advert that I find myself interested in buying and reading the book on which it's based.
