OK. Wrote to the coast guard and they have located the merchant mariners records!! That gets us closer to solving our mystery. But, here is the bad part. They won't give us the records unless we have a certified copy of his death certificate. We are looking for him, because we don't know when or where he died...so, we do not have the certificate. It does say we can get the records with a court order from a court of "competent jurisdiction", whatever that means. So the end may be close, but as they say, so far....
