The report of the supposed tragedy came seven weeks ago from Scott Steele's distraught Swedish girlfriend, Susanne Pettersson. Vacationing on Santa Catalina Island, Steele, a Dana Point businessman, had gone out on the water early the morning of March 11 with his 3-year-old son, Schyler, in an inflatable boat, Pettersson told the U.S. Coast Guard. The two did not return. Fearful of a drowning, several dozen Coast Guard searchers combed frantically through the night by air and sea, finding no one. A Waste of Time Law enforcement officials now say the Coast Guard was wasting its time.

There are signs of a champion littered throughout the Newport Beach apartment. A silver cup from the United States boardsailing championships, gold medals from the Pan-American and Goodwill games, and photographs spanning 10 years of boardsailing competitions--the last five on the international level. Kathy Steele pointed out all of them, and more. There was no conceit in her voice, merely pride. And a little fatigue. "For 10 years, I've been a boardsailing junkie," Steele said.
