There's something about the ocean that keeps sailors, even people who were lost at sea, coming back time and again. But two sailors who did get lost on the ocean recently have many people wondering: were Jennifer Appel and Tasha Fuiava really lost at sea, or were they making the whole thing up? Some think that rather than survivors of a trying ordeal they're really women lying about being lost at sea.
Several factors about their saga has people questioning their story. For example, they had an emergency beacon but didn't use it. Stranger still, they seemed to actively avoid bringing their badly damaged ship into port several times. Other people point to the simple fact that it seems like too much of a coincidence that they would have all of their communications equipment break all at once. But if there's something about the ocean that keeps people coming back, there's also something that inspires the imagination of those who spend thousands of lonely hours at sea to stretch the truth at times.
