ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Coast Guard will search a second night for the captain of a doomed tall ship that sank during Hurricane Sandy.
Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Mike Patterson says the search for the HMS Bounty captain will continue through Tuesday night with a C-130 plane and 2 cutter ships.
Searchers hope that 63-year-old Robin Walbridge of St. Petersburg, Fla., has been able to survive in the relatively mild 77-degree waters of the Atlantic about 90 miles off Cape Hatteras.
Patterson says search planes can no longer see the Bounty, an 18th-century replica tall ship used in many movie dramas. The ship's masts had stayed visible for hours after the decks disappeared below the waves early Monday.
