Worked on a commercial fishing boat the F/V Ariva for the past 15 years. Our home port was Trabzon, Turkey. We mainly fished for Herring. During the beginnings of the outbreak we were out to sea and heard only rumors from other captains over VHF. Most of the stories involved Chernarus and made little sense. When we returned to Trabzon we could see the smoke from the city from 20 miles out. All of our calls to the harbor went unanswered. There were people in the water 20 miles out, and they were floating and still appeared to be alive but crazed. During the night we were attacked. The beasts climbed up our anchor line and started attacking us. For hours we fought to pull our anchor and go back to sea. We lost 2 for our five men crew in the chaos. The rest of us we wounded by the biters. For the next two weeks we drifted. Out of fuel. i locked myself in my cabin and suffered fever dreams and hallucinations. I could hear my other crew members screaming and clawing at my door. The second week my fever broke and i hadn't heard any signs of life outside my door. When i went out on deck there was no one on the boat everyone had disappeared. I had a couple cans of food and 2 water bottles. I tried to ration my supplies but i was weak and dangerously dehydrated. The next day i could make out a distant shore line and decided to launch our dinghy to get to shore. I wasn't sure I had enough fuel to get to shore but I was sure to die if i stayed on this boat. I made it about 2 Km from shore when a wave capsized my dinghy and i had to swim. The waves where my saving grace they pushed me into shore. Hypothermic and weak i walked down the nearest road and found a abandoned car with a map inside it. I was in Chernarus. Out the the frying pan into the fire. I could hear gunshots in the distance and a moan not too far away from me. I need to find shelter soon.
