Publisher's Summary

Promising Forecast is the true story of five men who start out on a well-planned and exciting deep-sea fishing trip that quickly turns into a harrowing experience. Without any warning, their boat suddenly sinks 30 miles offshore. Shocked and disoriented, they find themselves stranded and helpless in the water for almost 19 hours with only lifejackets and a strong will to live. Each man reacts as the realities of danger and death confront them. They share their fears, thoughts and feelings while facing challenge after challenge as they struggle to survive this seemingly hopeless situation. Against overwhelming odds, all five men are miraculously rescued and the authors live to tell the tale of their physical, mental and spiritual experiences... and how it has affected their perspectives on life today. A good read for men, women, and young adults alike.

    "Impressive story of survival"

    A fishing trip accident in September 1986 left Daniel David Jones and Arthur Higbee and three other men drifting apart in the currant after their 32 feet fishing speedboat sank. That morning they had traveled about sixty miles out into the Atlantic Ocean from Ocean City, New Jersey to fish for Tuna.

    The story tells of their time in the water and then the miracle rescue by a freighter that almost ran them over. The book is well written and the authors were able to write about their emotions during the harrowing seventeen hour experience in a way that allows the reader to feel involved. The authors also tell a bit about their lives leading up to the trip and after they returned home.

    As equally interesting is the story of trying to get a book published. In 1986 they apparently tried to tell their story but were unsuccessful in finding a publisher. In 2004 TV’s Outdoor Life Network turned their story into a fifteen minute mini-documentary. They decided to self-publish; the book is available on Amazon and has met with some success. John Redding of Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, decided to help them by producing an audio book of the book and it is now available on Audible.
