My FOIA Request to the US Navy regarding the rescue of the crew of the SV Sea Nymph 900 miles off Japan by Linus Wilson

USS Ashland Arrives to Okinawa with Mariners

This is what I asked for with my Freedom of Information Request:

“What are the daily operating costs of the USS Ashland?

  1. How many days and hours did it take for the USS Ashland to intercept Jennifer Appel and Natasha Fuiva to the SV Sea Nymph in October 2017?
  2. How many days and hours did it take for the USS Ashland to reach its next port after picking them up?
  3. Did any US Navy personnel examine the spreaders and rigging of the SV Sea Nymph? What if any problems did they find?
  4. Did any US Navy personnel attempt to start the engine of the SV Sea Nymph? What did they do to get it started?
  5. Did any US Navy personnel ask Appel or Fuiva if they had each of the following prior to October 30, 2017: an EPIRB, SSB, Satelite Phone, and GPS? What were the responses of Appel or Fuiva prior to October 30, 2017?”
