And now new evidence has come to light that should – once and for all – clear the Skipper of any wrongdoing in the shipwrecking of the S.S. Minnow on that fateful day in late September of 1964. Actual hard copies of radar images that have been hidden from the public for many decades have recently surfaced (no softcopy exists) and they clearly suggest that the Skipper and Gilligan encountered a rare atmospheric phenomenon known to meteorologists as “Sudden Squall Line Eruptus (SSLE)”.

This rare weather phenomenon has been witnessed almost exclusively in tropical atmospheres over the warm ocean waters of the Pacific Ocean. The few observations that we have of this infrequent event suggest that totally clear conditions almost miraculously give way to the eruption of a dangerous squall line in just a matter of minutes and indeed that is exactly what is indicated by these just revealed radar images. In just a few minutes, the radar maps reveal a change from perfectly dry conditions to an ominous-looking squall line not giving boaters any time to prepare or make it back to land. It should be noted that computer forecast models were in their infancy back in the middle 1960’s and were very unlikely to have captured this kind of small-scale and rare atmospheric event and this would explain the universal favorable weather forecasts on that day.

In light of this new evidence, it can finally be said without reservation that the Skipper was indeed “brave and sure” and his mate, Gilligan, “a mighty sailing man” and if not for the courage of the fearless crew, the S.S. Minnow would have been lost.

One final note…Happy April Fool’s Day to all…hopefully, “you’re sure to get a smile”.
