    SOOKESOOKE NEWS 2010 WINNERM I R R O RSearch called off for two local kayakersPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    Its been a rough week for Ralph Hull and the families and friends of two contract workers who have gone missing while kayaking out in Sooke Harbour on Sept. 27. Missing since last Tues-day night are Morgan Por-ter and John Elgin, both 29-years-old.

    The two were spotted messing around with two blue kayaks at the dock at Hulls waterfront prop-erty along Sooke Harbour around 4 p.m.

    Its been tough, says Hull. They have not been found.

    Hull said both plastic kay-aks have now been found, a life jacket was found at Iron Mine Bay in East Sooke but both paddles have not yet been retrieved. Hull said he is 99 per cent certain that the life jacket was one of his.

    Iron Mine Bay sheds some light on where they made it to in their travels. To take those little kayaks out is sheer stupidity, and to get out past Possession Point is a big accomplish-ment.

    He said the lifejacket that was found was a piece of s**t and he would never use them for ocean kayak-ing, or the kayaks for that matter.

    There are mysteries yet to be solved. Hull said a back-pack is missing off the barge. The two men were working

    for Hull and they had just finished painting the house. He had hired Porter and he brought Elgin along.

    They were school mates since they were waist high and went through life together, said Hull.

    What happened, when and where still raises a huge question mark. Hull was in

    town from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. and the two men were sup-posed to fix things. When he came back they were no where to be found and Hull thought they had finished up and had gone home.

    He said the two went joy riding, in the kayaks as they were spotted by kids on the property with the kayaks, a backpack full of beer and a lifejacket.

    Ron Neitsch from 2 Reel Fishing Adventures coming back in at dusk spotted two overturned kayaks close to Otter Point. The two kayak-ers were also spotted close to Whiffin Spit and again close to Possession Point. A search commenced Tues-day night, coordinated by

    the Joint Rescue Coordina-tion Centre employing heli-copters, a navy vessel and the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary, Station #37 Sooke but was called off at 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

    At that time Hull did not know his two kayaks were missing and a text message sent out was not received until the following morning (Wednesday) when they put two and two together.

    A strong ebb tide rushing out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca would have carried anything out with it.

    Hull said that Porter was a good strong swimmer, and a capable and daring young man. But, survival in the cold waters of the strait for more than one-half an hour is next to impossible with-out a survival suit.

    Hull went out in his own boat on Wednesday search-ing for the paddles or a sign of anything. If the men had made it to Secretary Island they could have survived but the strong current and ebb tide would likely have taken them out west.

    Its a tragedy, said Hull. He said that as a captain

    he always has to think of what could happen on the water before or if it ever does.

    You have to use good common sense and logic around the water. You pre-pare. Its a negative world we live in as sea captains and we need to deal with
