Fatal Forecast chronicles a dramatic fight for survival aboard two small fishing boats that were caught in a horrific surprise storm off 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 ninety-foot waves that battered the boats for hours and 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 boats’ crewmembers, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tougias spins a marvelous and terrifying yarn…This is a breathtaking book.” Los Angeles Times
“Deserves a place as a classic survival at sea.” Boston Globe
“A meticulously researched and vividly told true story that is by turns tragic, thrilling, and inspiring.” Nantucket Independent
“[A] dramatic, pared-down account…Tougias smartly leavens his spare narrative with similar worst-case scenarios that resulted when other seamen miscalculated the sea’s wrathful power.” Publishers Weekly
“A passionately recounted peril-at-sea adventure…described with excruciating intensity…A blustery seafarer’s delight, rendered with gusto.” Kirkus Reviews
