Three boaters rescued after three days lost at sea

Three boaters in South Florida have made it back to worried friends and family on dry land, three days after they went missing when their 32-foot boat broke down during what was supposed to be a one-day fishing trip 20 miles off of West Palm Beach.

The trio - identified as John Land, 48, David Blakeney, 39, and Kevin Wood, 45, all from the local area - and their disabled Shade Maker were spotted Saturday night by a U.S. Navy frigate 85 miles east of Jacksonville, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
