Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea
In putting some history together of this boat prior to the voyage... they replaced the engine and went to sea immediatly, much later in the year than they expected.
Therefor its an assumption the boat would have been out of the water for some considerable time... a few months in a NZ summer.
Could an old boat fully dry for the first time in many years have been a contributing factor in either popping a plank on a wave, or a catastrophic situation bordering on what Harborless opines?
