It's been five years since teenagers Josh Long and Troy Driscoll were swept out to sea from Sullivan's Island on a ramshackle unmasted 15-foot sailboat.

For nearly a week they drifted and hope died as the search was called off by the Coast Guard -- but they would be spotted days later by a passing fisherman near North Carolina.

Today, The Post and Courier has a report about the pair that is now 20 and 22 years old remembers the day and where their lives are.

Take a read here.

MSNBC had a TV news report about the boys recovery back in 2005, I've inserted the video below.
