Fatal Forecast chronicles a dramatic fight for survival aboard two small fishing boats that were ambushed by a horrific surprise storm just southeast of Cape Cod.

Soon after the Fair Wind and the Sea Fever reached the fishing ground at Georges Bank, they were hit with hurricane-force winds and massive 90-foot waves that battered the boats for hours. The direction of the wind made it impossible to turn back. The Fair Wind soon capsized, drowning all but one of the crewmembers. The Sea Fever was nearly torn apart.

Here is the hour-by-hour account of the struggles faced by the eight crewmembers of the Fair Wind and the Sea Fever, including the incredible ordeal of Ernie Hazard, who endured three days in a lifeboat in open water. The book also details the dramatic rescue attempts made by the Coast Guard, on a day in which it received more mayday calls than any other in New England history. Download and start listening now!

    " My friend owns this boat Sea Fever and suggested I read this book. I'm certainly happy I did! I was on the edge the entire time and finished the book in two days. "

    " It was a true story of a disaster at sea. I was kind of into it, even though the writing was cheesy, just because i'm a sucker for disaster. But then the pictures in the middle of the book gave away the ending (who dies, who doesn't) and I got bored and quit. "

    " My husband got this book for Christmas and when I started reading it, I was drawn in from the start. This amazing story of survival at sea against all odds should be an inspiration to us all. If you're a water person and/or enjoy books on survival and outdoor adventure, this is a great read. "

    " This book was very good. I liked it because it was a story of incredible survival at sea. Fatal Forecast is a true story and took place in November, 1980. The main characters are lobster fisherman who are faced with 70 foot waves in the Atlantic Ocean when a huge, unexpected storm rolls in. "

    " Incredible story, but I found the writing corny at parts. It also jumped around to stories that were similar to the events taking place, which felt a lot like filler. This would have been better if it had been made into more of a short story instead of a 200 page book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cape Fisherman | 5/19/2010

    " An almost unbelievable account of survival at sea. Yet again Michael Tougias knits a page turning tale based on his meticulous research of the events that led up to and followed a maritime disaster. "
