Missing Boaters

FILE - In this Sept. 27, 2016, file photo, Nathan Carman arrives in a small boat at the US Coast Guard station in Boston after spending a week at sea in a life raft before being rescued by a passing freighter. Carman's boat boat sank with his mother onboard. She was never found. His insurance company is refusing to pay for the loss of the boat, saying his repair work made it unseaworthy. Lawyers for Carman and the insurance company met Monday, Aug. 7, 2017, behind closed doors with a federal magistrate judge in Providence, R.I., to discuss the case. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer, File)
