In this July 10 photo taken by the U.S. Coast Guard, the 42-foot sailboat Walkabout ("Tramp ") drifts after the devastating Hurricane Julio 643 kilometers northeast of Oahu, Hawaii. The 12-meter waves and winds of up to 185 kilometers per hour broke the vessel's mast, threw its life raft overboard and ripped the cover off one of the inlet hatches, causing the lost control yacht to start actively gaining water. There were three men aboard the yacht. They wererescued by a container ship, which was in relative proximity.
